Meeting 2/25

On 2/4, we had the first embedded workshop, where we flashed code onto attiny85 microcontrollers (just 8-pin dip in breadboards), demonstrating some basic IO, timing, and power related things. The goal of this is to show that you can get away with quite a bit even with an extremely simple AVR chip. Details are below:

Embedded Systems Workshop 1

There will likely be a part 2 to this in the near future (TBD), though we may move to a different chip.

Options for a second workshop

  • JTAG debugging
  • One wire interfaces
  • Software interrupts & in depth interrupts
  • Watchdog timer
  • Types of pins
  • Application specific things (LCD, SD cards)

Senior design students, remember that the class requirements are about the same as last term:

  • Attend 2 meetings
  • Attend an event
  • Generate some online content (add to the tutorials page, write a post, spend time on Slack).
