June 26 - Day 5: Roll Your Own to Wireless
Continuing Education Center 
6/26/2015  Post a comment
Today we focus on designing a base piece of Internet-capable hardware. The design can be used as an entry gateway, an intermediate node, or an exit gateway. We will also code the firmware for the aforementioned nodal functions.
June 25 - Day 4: WICED Use of the Internet
Continuing Education Center

Technology provided by Anaren shines in this class, as we will drive an Anaren A20737 radio module across the Internet. We will ride the electron highway in luxury aboard Anaren’s new WiFi gateway. Today’s hardware project involves moving the A20737 from the factory demo board to a user-designed printed circuit board.
June 24 - Day 3: Internet Connectivity from Down Under

The ACKme WiFi networking modules mean Numbat and Wallaby. In this lecture we also will tame an ACKme Bobcat Bluetooth module and watch it walk peacefully with a Numbat module on the Internet trail. This hardware project is based on the ACKme AMW006 (Numbat) module.
June 23 - Day 2: Internet-Based Bluetooth Control
Continuing Education Center

In this lecture we will design and implement a trans-Internet Bluetooth session using Microchip’s RN4020 Bluetooth Low Energy module. This class also will have you ready for designing and implementing the Bluetooth session’s Internet gateway framework.
June 22 - Day 1: Low-Cost Internet via RF
Continuing Education Center

This class will demonstrate how an $8 set of ASK radio modules can perform monitor and control operations using the Internet. Our project task for this class will involve designing and building the ASK radio entry and exit Internet gateways.
February 13 - Day 5: Coding Smart Module Device Drivers with the CCS C Compiler
Continuing Education Center 
2/13/2015  382 comments
The CCS C Compiler has a wealth of built-in serial EEPROM, serial SRAM, real time clock and digital potentiometer IC drivers, enabling creation of unique device drivers for AM/FM data radio modules, WiFi modules, Bluetooth modules, sensor modules, digital control modules and LCD panels. The CCS C Compiler also can code an interface between the smart module and a PC application. This lecture will demonstrate how driver coding can be done quickly.
February 12 - Day 4: Bluetooth on Your Phone Courtesy of the CCS C Compiler
Continuing Education Center 
2/12/2015  376 comments
Bluetooth Low Energy technology is bringing phone-based sensor monitor and control applications to the forefront. Putting together the embedded hardware and sensor firmware is the relatively easy part. Placing those pretty widgets on the phone’s LCD and communicating with them can be tricky. This lecture will show you how the CCS C Compiler simplifies embedded BLE programming on the PIC as well as the phone.
February 11 - Day 3: The Internet of Things According to CCS C
Continuing Education Center 
2/11/2015  440 comments
TCP clients and servers have become the “thing” in the embedded world. The Microchip PIC microcontrollers have the necessary hardware attributes to participate in this new “world” and the CCS C Compiler has the firmware tools to support them. After today’s lecture, you will be able to use the CCS C Compiler to fling bits around on LANs, WANs and the internet.
February 10 - Day 2: Embedded USB Tasks with CCS C
Continuing Education Center 
2/10/2015  446 comments
When it comes to embedded USB with a PIC microcontroller, you namethe task and the CCS C Compiler can probably do it. Today, with the help of the CCS C Compiler, we will breathe life into USB-enabled PIC devices. We will use the CCS C Compiler to create a USB bootloader, a USB HID class device, a USB CDC device and a USB-to-serial converter device.
February 9 - Day 1: Little Microcontrollers Doing Big Things with CCS C
Continuing Education Center 
2/9/2015  539 comments
Microchip has recently announced a number of 8-bit microcontrollers that contain the Enhanced Mid-Range Core. This lecture will demonstrate how to exploit the advanced features of these new microcontrollers using the CCS C Compiler.
