Embedded Systems Workshop Part II



Saturday, November 12, 2011 from 11:30-17:00


E3-558 EITC
University of Manitoba

This hands-on workshop is designed as a continuation of the beginners workshop held in October. A team of experienced mentors will use Code Composer Studio to demonstrate examples of:

  • analog-to-digital conversions,
  • handling input through push-buttons,
  • using built-in timers,
  • handling interrupts, and
  • using a capacitive touch interface.

Lunch will be served from 14:00-15:00pm in E1-514.
