ARM Embedded Systems Workshop

July 21 of 2017, Boca Raton, FL, United States.
Room: Majestic Palm


This hands-on workshop incorporates hardware and software material available from the Embedded Systems Education Kit produced by the ARM University Program and is based on the low-cost ($11) and main-stream ST NUCLEO-F103RB hardware platform. It introduces the education experience with a mechatronics approach, which is suitable for introductory and mid-level embedded systems courses and incorporates some of the experiences at INSPER.
The material covered in the workshop focusses on accessing and programming the microcontroller in C, both from mbed and MDK-ARM environment; subsequent material includes mechatronics topics such as controlling a stepper motor using dedicated device library. 


Silvio Szafir Bio:
