Embedded System Design Techniques™ - Rapid Prototyping Embedded Systems using Micro Python  
Monday, May 2 - Friday, May 6
Date Class   Status   Lecturer
May 2
2PM
May 2 - Day 1: Introduction to Micro Python
Understanding when and where it makes sense to use Python in the embedded system development cycle is a first step for any developer interested in using Python. This session will examine the Python programming language and introduce MicroPython along with its development platform PyBoard. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of what MicroPython is and how to setup a basic script that can control microcontroller hardware.

May 3 - Day 2: Libraries and Peripheral Control
The PyBoard is based on an ARM Cortex-M4 processor which has a large number of internal peripherals and capabilities. In this session, we’ll examine what libraries are available through MicroPython to control these peripherals and features. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of the libraries to control GPIO, timers SPI and UART peripherals.

May 4 - Day 3: Rapid Prototyping
In this session attendees will be walked through the process of connecting to and communicating with external devices and boards. Attendees will examine how to write data to an external EEPROM and Bluetooth device to transmit sensor debug data. Concepts can be applied to generic external modules but detailed specific examples will be provided.

May 5 - Day 4: Building and Customizing Micro Python
Running MicroPython on the Pyboard is one thing but what if a developer wants port or customize MicroPython to work on a different platform? In this session, we will explore how to customize and build MicroPython to run on off the shelf development kits. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of what it takes to get MicroPython up and running.

May 6 - Day 5: Python Scripting for Testing and Debug
Python can be used in embedded systems for much more than microcontrollers. In this session, we will examine how Python can be used control development tools. Attendees will walk away with an appreciation for how to write Python scripts that are reusable and can be used to test an embedded system.

May 18 - Day 3: Designing with e2 studio and Synergy Software Package (SSP)
This class will demonstrate how easy it is to create RTOS based designs using high level Frameworks within SSP. Frameworks provide a hardware independent development path that ‘fills in’ many of the low level details automatically.

May 19 - Day 4: The Target Kit and Resources
This class will describe the target board that can be optionally used as a hands-on extension to the course. The freely downloadable software can also be used to also follow along with the design examples, but just can’t be executed on actual hardware.

May 20 - Day 5: Example Designs in Detail
This class will select example designs from those suggested by students to solidify key techniques covered in previous classes. Students with actually hardware will be able to download the designs to the actual board while students with the software will be able to explore the code generated automatically by the software tools.
