Designing and Making Custom Arduino Boards
2019-11-14 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm EST
On Thursday, November 14, 2019, the IEEE Consultants’ Network of Northern NJ (www.technologyontap.org) will host a presentation on developing custom Arduino circuit boards using open-source tools.
About the Topic
Many projects can benefit by including one or more microcontrollers in a single design. This presentation describes a custom weather station that uses several Atmel microprocessors running the Arduino software system. We will explore the steps required to configure the Arduino software for different microcontroller clock rates, pinouts, etc. In addition, we will review useful open source software including KiCad EDA for schematic capture and layout.
