Conducted under IETE Student Forum
A hands-on Workshop on “Embedded System Design and Arduino Programming” Part – 1, was conducted by Prof. Upendra D Patil, Assistant Professor of Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, PHCET under IETE Students forum, one of the leading Professional Society in India, on 1st April, 2022.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. The programmer can tell the board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so Arduino programming language and Arduino Software (IDE) is used. Over the years Arduino has been the brain of thousands of projects, from everyday objects to complex scientific instruments. A worldwide community of makers – students, hobbyists, artists, programmers, and professionals – has gathered around this open-source platform, their contributions have added up to an incredible amount of accessible knowledge that can be of great help to novices and experts alike. Arduino has been used in thousands of different projects and applications. The Arduino software is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users. It runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Teachers and students use it to build low-cost scientific instruments, to prove chemistry and physics principles, or to get started with programming and robotics. Arduino boards are relatively inexpensive compared to other microcontroller platforms. Hence Arduino board can be used in embedded systems design for prototyping microcontroller-based systems to save time and money.
The second part of this session was conducted on 8th and 9th April, 2022
Prof. Mithun Nair and Prof. Shashikant Renushe coordinated the event. 37 students participated in this event.
The following points have been covered during the workshop:
- Embedded System Design Constraints
- Requirement of prototyping in Embedded System Design
- Arduino as prototyping hardware and software
- Arduino IDE
- Arduino programming language
- Digital and Analog Interface
