September 30 - Day 5: Smile for the Camera
Continuing Education Center 
9/30/2016  Post a comment
IoT design need not be confined to Ethernet and Bluetooth devices passing bytes of sensor data. Today’s lecture will focus on the capabilities of the ON Semiconductor MatrixCam. The MatrixCam is a 1080p camera solution that enables the streaming of video over WiFi and Ethernet.
September 29 - Day 4: Outside-of-the-Box IoT
Continuing Education Center 
9/29/2016  Post a comment
The bottom line in IoT is to deliver the payload. Today, we will “deliver” without the assistance of WiFi, Ethernet or Bluetooth. While we’re at it, we’ll use the power of the sun as an IoT delivery vehicle, as well.
September 28 - Day 3: Microchip’s IoT Packages – BM70 and BM71
Continuing Education Center 
9/28/2016  Post a comment
In addition to the RN4020, Microchip offers a pair of IoT-ready SoCs. Today, we will take a look at the Microchip BM70/71 PICtail, command set and programming utilities. To facilitate our BM7x exploration, we will first design and assemble a suitable BM7x prototype platform.
September 27 - Day 2: IoT Prototyping with Nordic’s New nRF52832
Continuing Education Center 
9/27/2016  Post a comment
The nRF52832 is billed as a Multiprotocol Bluetooth low energy/ANT/2.4GHz RF SoC. In this lecture we will explore the new features of the nRF52832 and write some code to put the nRF52832’s peripherals and radio through their paces. Our goal today is to design and build an nRF52832 prototype/test jig.
September 26 - Day 1: IoT Design Using Nordic’s nRF51822
Continuing Education Center 
9/26/2016  Post a comment
Today’s lecture will be supported by the free edition of Keil’s MDK for Cortex-M. The code produced by the Keil MDK will be used to expose the capabilities of various microcontroller elements of Nordic’s nRF51822 SoC. During the course of the lecture, we will utilize the nRF52 SDK to produce code that will enable various members of the nRF51822’s peripheral subsystems. Today’s task includes designing and scratch building an nRF51822 prototype/test jig.
June 24 - Day 5: Ethernet Connectivity Using PIC18 Devices
Continuing Education Center 
6/24/2016  413 comments
The PIC18 family of 8-bit devices includes a group Ethernet PIC microcontrollers. The object of today’s lecture is to use a PICDEM.net 2 Development Board to send packets over the internet. TCP and UDP protocols will be examined and put to work via code generated by the XC8 C compiler.
June 23 - Day 4: 8-bit Super PICs
Continuing Education Center 
6/23/2016  404 comments
Today will be dedicated to exercising the advanced features of the enhanced 8-bit PIC microcontroller family. These new 8-bit Super PICs are equipped with advanced analog computational capabilities and core independent peripherals. We will combine the forces of MPLAB X, XC8 and the Microchip Code Configurator to put the peripherals through their paces.
June 22 - Day 3: 8-bit Bluetooth via the RN4020
Continuing Education Center 
6/22/2016  418 comments
Sensors attached to the PICDEM Lab II Development Board rule the day. During the course of this lecture we will employ the services of the RN4020 Bluetooth Low Energy Module to bounce sensor data around in a Bluetooth PAN. We will also instruct the 8-bit PIC in charge to coerce our RN4020 device into interfacing with a mobile device.
June 21 - Day 2: 8-bit Embedded Development Using the MPLAB Code Configurator
Continuing Education Center 
6/21/2016  412 comments
The MPLAB Code Configurator is a graphical programming environment that is integrated into MPLAB X. C source code generated by the MPLAB Code Configurator can be inserted into an 8-bit PIC application. In this lecture, we will use the Explorer 8 Development Kit to demonstrate the capabilities of the MPLAB Code Configurator.
June 20 - Day 1: 8-bit Embedded Development Essentials
Continuing Education Center 
6/20/2016  426 comments
Today’s lecture will lay the groundwork for developing 8-bit PIC microcontroller applications using MPLAB X, XC8 and the new Curiosity Development Board. Code produced during this lecture will configure and enable peripherals and GPIO on the targeted 8-bit PIC devices.

Latest Analysis
Ford Motor Co. announced plans last week to join an ever-growing number of automakers who intend to produce fully autonomous vehicles in the next five years.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
Obtaining the benefits of a fully digital plant requires IoT connectivity and foresight in the planning process.
Optomec's Aerosol Jet systems have now been used by several customers for printing 3D polymer and composite structures at the micron scale with embedded electronics and biomedical applications.
Six big automakers will carry the electric vehicle (EV) battery market to a five-fold sales increase by 2020, a new study says.
