$50 eduMIP with 96Boards, BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, with Thomas Bewley (UCSD Professor)

Posted by Charbax – September 20, 2018

UC San Diego Professor Thomas Bewley discusses his Segway-like educational robotics kit, eduMIP, based on the BeagleBone Blue at Linaro Connect Vancouver 2018. This inexpensive kit (available online, for $128, at Renaissance Robotics https://www.renaissancerobotics.com/eduMIP.html) is used in his Embedded Control & Robotics course at UCSD, which Prof Bewley is currently working on taking online as a MOOC. It is also beginning to be used by a community of researchers and educators at other universities around the world. In this video, Prof Bewley also introduces his early efforts in developing new (and, significantly higher-power) motor-control daughterboards in the 96boards and Raspberry Pi formats. He also discusses eduMIP v.2 and some other advanced prototypes in his lab, as well as the Robot Control (RC) software library that drives this hardware, and will ultimately enable easy porting of control codes across the BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi, and 96boards linux-based product lines, in addition to deployment onto very-low-cost custom targets based on Cortex M based processors running an RTOS. His ultimate goal with this ambitious effort is to facilitate a much more seamless pathway from lab prototype to commercial product.

$47.95 Microchip MPLAB PICkit 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer

Posted by Charbax – August 9, 2018

Microchip Technology MPLAB PICkit 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows for fast debugging and programming of PIC and dsPIC flash microcontrollers. The MPLAB PICkit uses the powerful MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE) graphical user interface. Connect the MPLAB PICkit 4 to a PC using a high-speed 2.0 USB interface and to the target via a Microchip debug (RJ-11) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming. An additional micro SD card slot and the ability to be self-powered from the target means you can take and program your code on the go.

The MPLAB PICkit 4 can program faster than its predecessor and supports PIC and dsPIC MCU devices, along with a wider target voltage. The PICkit 4 supports advanced interfaces like 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming Data Gateway. The PICkit 4 is backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP. The PICkit 4 also has a unique programmer-to-go function with the addition of a micro SD card slot to hold project code and the ability to be powered by the target board.
