Thanks Fred, I love the mix of hardware and software in your talks.

Iron

Thank you Fred, very good strategy of... how to do from scratch to the actual data exchange.

How long it took to get it done? Days, weeks, hours?

Hardware type 80%, firmware 10%

Thank you Fred & Lauren. Very cool stuff.

Thanks everyone for attending today.

"See" you tomorrow..

Blogger

OK, Thanks Fred. I will check out their web site. And Digikey..

See you again tomorrow!

Thanks again and have good day

Iron

@Alaskaman66

If you mean the Twin Industries perf board, it is not Vector and yes DigiKey sells them.

Blogger

Thank you, Fred and Lauren.

Iron

Are they Vector brand? Does Digikey sell them?

Have I missed anyone?

Blogger

@Alaskaman66

Yep.  That's basically what I did here.  The SMT PIC is sorted out to 0.1-inch headers.  The radio interface is also brought out to headers

Blogger

@LeoSieben

Nope.  That's just a "Fred" tool.

Blogger

Thanks. We used 24-26 gauge in telecom. I have done my breadboarding using the pre-wired breadboards that take 20 or 22 gauge wire jumpers pushed into holes, but this layout usually is set up for a standard DIP package, and if the chips one is using are SMT or some other layout, I think the only way to use them would be some sort of adaptor to a dip. I presume SMT, BGA, and other physical chip layouts can be mated with wire wrap header boards?

@cghaba

As long as the radio doesn't leave your bench and does not try to interface to the real world, you can just make one up like I did...1122334455667709.

Blogger

@rshankle and @Laith

Yep.. What Laith said :-)

Blogger

Does digikey sell the EDTP template PCB?

Iron

@78RPM

I use a benchtop batch reflow oven.

Blogger

@xynxnex

Correct. The PMODRF2 is just a radio.  No RTCC.

Blogger

When you are not a vendor, manufacturer or other organization, but just an individual that develops a system, what OUI can you use?

Iron

@Alaskaman66

I do it for portability.  I like to reuse the templates.

I think I use 30 or 32 guage wire.  I have a huge roll I bought years ago.

Haven't thought about the gauge.  I just spool it out :-)

Blogger

rshankle

Organizationally Unique Identifier (OUI) is a 24-bit number that uniquely identifies a vendor, manufacturer, or other organization globally or worldwide.

Iron

Thanks Fred & Lauren.

Iron

Thank you Fred and Lauren. Have a great day.

Iron

Thank you for another great lecture.

Iron

Fred, do you prefer wire wrap to jumpered boards? What gauge wire wrap do you use?

is it understood correctly that the PmodRF2 doesnt have a realtime clock?

Iron

Thanks to Lauren, Design News and Digi-Key.

Iron

Another great session Fred. Thanks!

Iron

Thank you. I'd love to find a project that needs this kind of hardware. Fun stuff.

?? What is OUI?  (My question got lost in the "thanks" notes. : )  )

Iron

?? Fred, how do you solder your boards? Send them to a board house? Hand solder? bake them in a toaster oven?

Gold

Many thanks Fred. Apreciate the schematics, though I would have liked to start off with a system block diagram to get an idea of where it was all going!

Iron

Thanks again Fred and Lauren

Iron

Nice job Fred... Thanks

Iron

Thank you Fred & Lauren

Iron

Thank you Fred it was great

Iron

Makes me want to design something using this.  Very good.

Have not used that particular EEprom

Iron

have not used that eeprom

Iron

Haven't used the 25AA02E48 Eprom

Iron

have not used that chip

Iron

No not familiar with that EEPROM

Iron

No have not used 25AA02E48

Have not used 25AA02E48 EPROM

Iron

No experience wtih 25AA02E48

Iron

we have not used EPROM yet

Iron

The question was: Have you used the Microchip EUI-48 EEPROMs?   

Platinum

Yes, I've used the EEPROMs for unique MAC assignment in a MiWi Pro Mesh

Iron

Have not used AU02E48

Iron

used a similar eeprom

 

Iron

Have not used the EPROM

Iron

Thank you, I must log-out.

Iron

haven't use RTC yet, as well

 

Iron

Not used the PIC18F47J13.

Iron

Haven't used the PIC18F47J13.

Iron

No experience with PIC18F47J13

Iron

nope, just found about it now.

Iron

Have not used the RTC on that uC

Iron

The question was: Have you used the PIC18F47J13 RTCC?   

Platinum

No have not used the RTC

Hardware and firmware, both.

Iron

hardware, but I need to learn firmware

 

Iron

A little bit of both

 

Iron

back ground only on Hardware

Iron

I'm a bit of both; interested, especially, in their intersection (ie hooking up electronics to software).

Iron

Both, heavily leaning to hardware

Iron

Have background in Hardware and Software.

Iron

I am mostly firmware but dabble a lot in hardware

Gold

Both, but mostly hardware the last few years.

Iron

More hardware than software

Both HW & SW/FW type...

Iron

Both hardware/software

 

Iron

A little of both, but a master of neither :)

Iron

The question was: Are you a hardware type, a firmware type, or both?

Hi all -Audio is live! If you don't see the audio bar at the top of the screen, please refresh your browser. It may take a couple tries. When you see the audio bar, hit the play button. If you experience audio interruptions and are using IE, try using FF or Chrome as your browser. Many people experience issues with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. Some companies block live audio streams, so if that is the case for your company, the class will be archived on this page immediately following the class and you can listen then. People don't experience any issues with the audio for the archived version.
