May 23 – Day 3 – MikroElektronika on ICE

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...

January 31 – Day 3 – Curiosity PIC32 MZEF

Bare metal IoT design is the theme of the day. In today’s lecture we will sing out of tune and, without the aid of MPLAB Harmony, craft a PIC32MZ EF microSD click board driver. While we’re at it, we will also teach the PIC32MZ EF to sense temperature and humidity using a DHT22-2 click board.
