For the last twelve years, he has specialized in the integration of communication protocols into clients' products, including USB, Ethernet, and low-power wireless including ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, LoRa, and Thread. He has taught classes in these protocols for Freescale, Renesas, various universities and conferences including ESC and Arm TechCon. He has been a design partner with Freescale/NXP, Microchip, and Renesas. He also teaches webinars for various clients on IoT and embedded systems topics. He earned his BS in electrical engineering from N.C. State University in Raleigh, N.C. and provides training and consulting services through his company, Blue Ridge Advanced Design, in Asheville, N.C. He is a licensed professional engineer in NC and a senior member of the IEEE. In his volunteer work at the IEEE, he has served at many levels from local to regional to board committees. He is currently the chair of the IEEE Western NC Section, NC Council and was general chair of IEEE SoutheastCon 1995 and 2017.

August 7 - Day 5: Using Wireshark to Test an Embedded IPv6 Project

In our final class, we will program a FRDM-K64 demo board from Freescale Semiconductor to perform some IPv4 and IPv6 functions and monitor them with Wireshark. We will then use this to troubleshoot our application. We will close the class with some looks at the strengths and weaknesses of the...

June 10 - Day 3: Digital Filters I: Sampling and the Z-Transform

Computation - particularly with the advent of digital signal processing (DSP) - allows us to create very powerful filters that can add new capabilities. Here, we go into digital filters with a review of the transform from the continuous time domain to the sampled domain. We will look at not only...

June 9 - Day 2: Analog Filters II: Active Filters

As we will have learned in Day 1, a resonant circuit is affected by the circuits that exist at its input and output. In this class, we will look in depth at the addition of operational amplifiers (and in RF - other amplifiers) to make powerful and accurate filters for our applications.
