Fred Eady is the owner of EDTP Electronics, which was established in 1988 following the publication of his first magazine article. Since the formation of EDTP Electronics, Fred has written thousands of magazine articles. He has written for all of the major electronic magazines, including Radio Electronics, Electronics Now, Nuts and Volts, Servo, MicroComputer Journal, and Circuit Cellar. To date, he has authored four books and contributed to a fifth. He currently works as a PIC microcontroller consultant and is a Microchip Authorized Design Partner. Fred also authors monthly columns in Nuts and Volts and Servo magazines. His customers include machine shops, specialty startup companies, medical machine manufacturers, coin-operated device businesses, and various other research and development companies. He has a very close working relationship with Microchip Technology, the manufacturer of PIC microcontrollers, and has taught Ethernet and WiFi classes at Microchip's annual Masters Conference.
Today’s lecture is heavily geared toward coding sensor firmware. We will utilize the resources of MikroElektronika’s largest ARM development board and mikroC PRO for ARM to create firmware for the newest sensor-laden click boards.
The final lecture in this series will utilize the services of a DIGI XBEE Cellular LTE CAT 1 Development Kit to demonstrate how AVR microcontrollers can be used in the realization of cellular-based IoT devices.
The ATmega4809 Xplained Pro development board is designed to interface with MikroElektronika click boards. In this lecture, we are going to “click” on everything AVR and explore interfacing various MikroElektronika click boards to a number of differing AVR microcontrollers.
MikroElektronika offers some very nice AVR development hardware. Coupled with Atmel Start, Atmel Studio 7 and an Atmel-ICE, the MikroElektronika XMEGA hardware development systems are compact enough and powerful enough to allow you to craft IoT designs at your desk. We will use the aforementioned...
Today’s lecture is all about gathering data, storing it, displaying it or moving it about using AVR microcontrollers. The focus will be on developing low-level AVR drivers that are capable of interfacing an AVR microcontroller to various types of sensors.
