July 25 - Day 5: Application Emulation Using Em-Browser & an iPhone
Continuing Education Center 
7/25/2014  Post a comment
Em-Browser gives the developer total control of the embedded systems resources. Today we will use Em-Browser and an iPhone to emulate and debug an application targeting our home-grown B-SMART PIC32MX reference design.
July 24 - Day 4: Design & Assemble a Bluetooth Low-Energy Embedded Device
Continuing Education Center 
7/24/2014  Post a comment
Today we will put on our hardware hats and design and assemble a home-grown Anaren A2541 BLE embedded device hosted by a PIC32MX695F512H. The reference design concepts exposed in today’s lecture can be applied to most any microcontroller that supports the C programming language.
July 23 - Day 3: Creating Schemas to Develop a Bluetooth Link
Continuing Education Center 
7/23/2014  2 comments
A schema is simply a description of available embedded resources. Today we will create a schema based on the embedded resources of the Digilent ChipKIT MX3 development board. We will also examine the firmware that is automatically generated as a result of the schema build process.
July 22 - Day 2: Coding a Hardware Abstraction Layer
Continuing Education Center 
7/22/2014  325 comments
In today’s discussion we will define Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) functionality and code a specialized HAL for the Digilent ChipKIT MX3’s PIC32MX320F128H microcontroller.
July 21 - Day 1: The Out-of-the-Box Bluetooth Experience
Continuing Education Center 
7/21/2014  373 comments
Today’s lecture will feature the Ana ren B-SMART BoosterPack development tool. The BoosterPack will be coupled with a Texas Instruments MSP430 LaunchPad development board to provide a working out-of-the-box MSP430-to-iPhone Bluetooth application. No Bluetooth or MSP430 knowledge is required.
March 28 - Day 5: WiFi the PIC Way
Continuing Education Center 
3/28/2014  420 comments
Today we will implement an embedded WiFi solution using a 32-bit PIC microcontroller and the Harmony development environment.
March 27 - Day 4: Embedded Ethernet the PIC Way
Continuing Education Center 
3/27/2014  409 comments
A variety of scalable embedded Ethernet solutions are available. In today’s lecture we will implement a number of Ethernet hardware designs, which are based on Ethernet-enabled PIC microcontrollers and external MAC/PHY devices.
