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.

January 30 – Day 2 – Explorer 16/32 Development Board

Today’s lecture will expand upon the capabilities of the PIC32MM0064GPL036. We will mount a PIC32MM0064GPL036 PIM on our Explorer 16/32 Development Board and use the MPLAB software tools to create firmware capable of driving even more MikroElektronika click boards including a GPS click module.

January 29 – Day 1 – PIC32MM Curiosity

The first lecture of this series will introduce you to the Microchip PIC32MM Curiosity Development Board. We will utilize the latest versions of MPLABX, the XC32 C compiler, and the Microchip Code Configurator to assemble IoT firmware packages that drive the PIC32MM Curiosity’s PIC32MM0064GPL036...

November 15 – Day 3 – ARM Peripherals 101

Now that we know how to control the ARM I/O subsystem, we can add to that functionality by taking control of the ARM on-chip peripherals. Today’s lecture will concentrate on enabling ARM-based UARTS, SPI and USB portals.

November 14 – Day 2 – ARM I/O 101

Learning to control an ARM processor’s I/O subsystems is essential. In this lecture, we will code firmware manipulation routines for various STMicroelectronics ARM microcontrollers using the Keil MDK-Essential Edition.

November 13 – Day 1– Call to ARM(s)

Today, we will collect all of the tools we’ll need to ARM ourselves for the rest of the lecture series. We will gather programmers/debuggers, install software tools and test the operation of the hardware that we will be discussing this week.
