Hi Jon, thanks for the link. This continued education series helps busy engineers maintain existing skills and learn new ones. Tech students, inventors, and entrepreneurs will benefit from these classes as well.

I teach a Microprocessor class at ITT Tech and have explained to my class the benefit behind these Development kits for rapid prototyping new product concepts and features. I continued to use them in my engineerng design projects to prove technical feasibility and to demonstrate the lastest in microcontroller and semiconductor technologies to Product Managers.

Hi Jon,

That's great that the classes are archived. It really helps when your busy with other activities. Also, I enjoy reading your articles and blogs; they're very motivational. Keep up the good work!

The development-kit seminars in the Digi-Key Continuing Education program remain archived for anyone to view any time. You can download the PowerPoint slides and listen to the audio.  Many interesting questions and answers for each session, too.

They're Cheap!

I use them all the time, they're cheap and most times have enough breadboard area to get a circuit into to.  Sometimes I don't even reuse them, just wire them up for a prototype and leave them in the cabinet if the design ever needs to be revisited.

You make an excellent point, gsmith120 - they are a great way to narrow down your design choices and make a final selection! Much better than blindly picking one according to spec sheets without having any real world experience. Thanks for pointing that out!

Development Kits

Thanks Richard for this blog I would love to attend the live online class but due to a schedule conflict I will have to get it as an archive.  It comes at a good time because I'm in the process of selecting a development kit for one of my new designs. 

Kind of off subject but maybe someone will blog about Field-programmable analog arrays (FPAAs).  I read about them many years ago when I worked for a major corporation but couldn't get much interest from my co-workers.  Maybe because most were digital designers however I like and do design both analog and digital circuits so I was/am very interested in this technology.  Now that I'm working for myself and developing new products I've decided to incorporate one in my new design idea and maybe as a part of the research I will do to get my PhD.

I agree with you Nancy, develop kits are a great way to become familiar with specific technology.  I have a couple and really enjoy them.  Several designers I know would use them as their somewhat prototype before selecting the final microprocessor or FPGA.

Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
