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.

October 25 – Day 5 – MQTT Primer

The final lecture in this series will consist of an application based on MQTT, which rides on TCP/IP. MQTT is a Client Server publish/subscribe messaging transport protocol that lends itself well to IoT devices. In this final installment, we’re going to put MQTT on your phone.

October 23 – Day 3 – TCP/IP in a Can

WIZnet offers a number of Ethernet devices that are backed up by a hardwired TCP/IP stack. Today’s discussion will entail interfacing WIZnet modules to Microchip PIC and STM32 ARM microcontrollers.

October 21 – Day 1 – TCP/IP Fundamentals

The lecture series will begin by defining the elements that make up TCP/IP. The knowledge gained from our study of basic TCP/IP operations and concepts will be supported with the realization of an ENC28J60-enabled IoT device.

February 1 – Day 5 – The Data’s in the Mail

The goal is to contact an email server and send an informational email to a remote device at the appropriate moment. To accomplish this, we will need to code an SMTP application that our WIZ850io and ARM microcontroller can successfully execute.

January 31 – Day 4 – Coding a WIZ850io Driver

The WIZ850io module offloads the internet access and wired Ethernet tasks from our ARM microcontroller. An ioLibrary (internet offload library) is provided by the WIZ850io manufacturer. Our mission today is to adapt the WIZnet ioLibrary and WIZ850io module for use with our ARM microcontroller.

January 28 – Day 1 – Pouring a Logical Foundation

We begin by translating our hardware components into logical elements. Data paths to and from the ARM microcontroller will also be defined. We will use a J-link PRO for debugging and programming. An alternate debugging portal consisting of one of the ARM microcontroller’s USARTs. An FTDI TTL-232R-...
