Future course on QR code reading/writing printing might be interesting and useful. Thanks for your presentations.

Iron

Sensors, High Density PCB design, Minimisation of discrete components, MEMs, 3D printing technology

No "big data" issues at this time

Great presentation, Thank You

Iron

Catching the late presentation

Iron

Looking forward to the MQX RTOS from Freescale class. Thank you and have a great weekend!

Iron

Thanks again for everyone's participation!! See you here or on LinkedIn (I am charleslord there). Have a great weekend!

Iron

Yes, I remember hearing about an EE prof being asked what a good A/D and D/A combination would be to take an analog signal and double the amplitude. They wanted to digitize it, multiply by 2 with a micro and convert back to analog.

Iron

Yes and it is becoming a lost art. Even simple active filters.

Iron

@CJlord  Fewer engineers are doing analog, but it is becoming more important with sensor signal processing and other areas that are exploding.

Iron

My next proposed class is a case study of the MQX RTOS from Freescale. No date scheduled yet.

 

Iron

Great idea @garysxt - Analog for Digital Engineers. I taught a class on this (face to face) in the past and it was well received.

Iron

Thanks for an interesting lecture series.

Iron

Another key player in material science  http://www.fabricate2011.org/neri_oxman/

Iron

Thanks Charles, Lauren and Digi-Key.  Have a great weekend.

Iron

Any other questions? Or is everyone ready for the weekend and bugging out?

 

Iron

Thank you Charles. No further questions. Thanks Lauren and Digi-Key.

Gold

78RPM - yes, the "smart Highway" is the concept of a road with a communications channel where cars can communicate but the highway can track where cars are to eliminate tailgating, speeding, and thus avoid collisions. Olus can help with navigation, detours, etc

Iron

Future Lectures. The new frontiers of "materials Science" will challenge engineers to integrate their disciplines with the development of materials that have embedded sensors including RISC and FPGA that are cellular and organic. Here's a glimpse http://www.springer.com/materials/journal/11706

Iron

Class suggestions: Digital Signal Processing, look into details of TCP/IP. A lot of the topics have been digital oriented. Something from the analog world would be a good change of pace.

Iron

?? Charles, One slide in a previous lecture mentioned the "Smart Highway." What is that? Also: Are vehicles currently "talking" to each other, say for rear-end collision avoidance or other purpose?

Gold

Great lecture,I feel that there will be new tablets,computers with biometric security such as fingerprint readers, and Iris scanners

Iron

Thanks Charles and Lauren.

Iron

Thanks. I'm not really doing any development work yet. I work on test equipment so I am just trying to keep an eye on what's coming and what standards will have to be incorporated in our equipment so that the R&D folks can test it while it is being developed.

Thanks again. -- See you next time!

Thanks Digi-Key -- a great resource!

Iron

Maybe some kind of communication protocol for a future class.

Thanks for the lecture series.

Iron
Thank you very much and have a nice Weekend
 
Iron
Interesting challenges ahead. Thanks

New classes regarding ARM /MCU implementation and programming.

Iron

time to go. thanks Charles and all for an interesting way to use my lunch time this week. have a great long weekend.

Iron

Thanks, enjoy the long weekend.

Thanks Charles and Lauren.

Iron

Thank you Charles and Lauren

Iron

Very Interesting.  Thank You

Iron

I'm interested in self-configuring networks.  Like swarms only not necessarily mobile.

Iron

I would like more training on securing network servers from malicious external (hacking) activity.

Iron

Thanks for the great week of lectures

New ARM products and RTOS.

 

Iron

GREAT Introduction, Charles...thank you!

Iron

Thank you Lauren. Have a great weekend. Thank you Charles.

Iron

Periodic classes on new chips would be good.

Thank you Charles for a wonderful week of lectures.

Iron

More on Internet Security please.

Iron

Awesome, thank you for this series presentation Charles, thank you Lauren, Design News and Digi-key

Iron

How about a class on CAN?

Gold

Thank you Charles for another great lecture.

Iron

The question was: What new topics would you like to see in future classes?

Platinum

We are on slide 17.

 

Platinum

You are such a cool Frood.  I know where my towel is too.

Iron

"The Cloud" was originally the vision of Sun Microsystems which dared to envision that the Internet should be the computer and personal computers would be terminals. The advantages of 'dumb terminals' in a disttibuted system are ease of use and dedication. But, of course, everyone scoffed. Now Sun's vision is becoming a reality. Irony is a word that should be integrated into the word "technology"Perhaps "Technirony"

Iron

?? TCP/IP models can be used on Mac or Microsoft machime?

Iron

I know "big data" and have good future.

Iron

Project based whether data issues are present.

Iron

Yes, "big data" needed for research and development.

Iron

some concern on our limitations in dealing with large amounts of data as we expand globally

Iron

no big data or IoT applications at this time

Iron

Maybe smaller local cloud

Iron

Yes.  Big data is an issue for us.  Bandwidth has actually been a limitation on system size and capability.

Iron

No big data at this time, but possible in the future

Iron

The question was: Are you looking at "big data" issues in your IoT implementation?

Platinum

Who would own the information?

Iron

Nop, no chance to use it.

Iron

I have not used a QR tag.

Iron

Have not used QR codes.

Iron

one of our new products has a QR code on the front panel

Iron

Not using Q-R codes

Iron

Considering using QR codes for an ID application.

Iron

Event Check in and tracking information data

Iron

I am not familiar with it.

Iron

Never used one -- don't have smart phone.

 

Iron

The question was: Has anyone used a QR code for tagging other than marketing?

Platinum

TGIF, sorry late again

Iron

Good Morning from Tucson, AZ

Iron

Three day weekend coming up to celebrate Italian navigator that got lost on his way to Asia. Wee Hoo
