Embedded Debugging Workshop [lab64 workshop]

Topic: 
Embedded Debugging Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

For this Wednesday's workshop (7pm, as usual), we are lucky to have Bob Martin, the "Wizard of Make" from Atmel/Microchip, come in and teach a workshop about debugging embedded systems. We'll be working with the smart plugs from previous workshops, so if you have one, please bring it. If you weren't a part of the smart plug workshops, but are interested in learning about debugging, send me an email (sgirvin@stanford.edu) and we'll figure something out for you.

From Bob, to participate in the workshop, you'll also need:

Pre-requisites
- Windows 7 or 10 laptop (Macs OK if running a Windows image inside virtual box or parallels but there's always issues with USB)
- Atmel Studio 7 (latest version installed)

http://www.microchip.com/development-tools/atmel-studio-7

- download off line installer, it's a bigger download but things will go faster
- At the bottom of the first install screen - uncheck - check for updates on web
- next install screen, only install AVR 8 bit, do not install AVR32 or SMART ARM, these options can be installed later
- next install screen uncheck option for installing ASF (Atmel Software Framework) , it's not needed and save a lot of time and disk space

Internet of Things, Smart Plug Workshop Series [lab64 workshop]

Topic: 
Workshop 4: Embedded programming
Abstract / Description: 

Workshop series – please RSVP.

We'll be running a four-workshop series on building an "Internet of Things" smart plug that you'll be able to use control power outlets remotely. And yes, you'll be able to keep it at the end.

Over the course of the workshops, you'll do everything from PCB layout to board assembly to embedded programming. All experience levels are welcome – we will teach you what you need to know (and there will be extensions for those with more experience and want to go further).

The workshops will be much more valuable for people who attend all four, but it will also be possible to participate if you can't make it every time. If you plan on attending the workshops, please RSVP with the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/bGRZF9CAsK3km93p1

Introduction to FPGAs [lab64 workshop]

Topic: 
Introduction to FPGAs
Abstract / Description: 

FPGA workshop:
This week's workshop will be super exciting! We'll be learning about field-programmable gate arrays, or FPGAs. An FPGA is basically a piece of reconfigurable hardware – code that you write gets synthesized into physical logic gates on the chip, which allows you to work with really fast signals and do very precise timing.

If you've never used an FPGA before, this will be a really cool workshop –we'll be starting from the ground up and programming a little FPGA board that's great for prototyping with. You'll need a laptop to participate in the workshop.
