A Wealth of Microcontroller Lectures and Student Projects from the Cornell University School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

BruceLand

Here’s a great tip shared with us for folks skimming the various “Best of 2012” postings out there in the world — an entire semester’s worth of microcontrollers lectures by Bruce Land, related labs and reading materials, and a listing and Youtube playlist of ten years worth of incredible student projects created in parallel. This resource is a real treat — we’ve covered a handful of this season’s projects before as they popped up at other electronics, technology, and DIY sites around: here’s the mother load:

These projects were produced in the last month of ECE 4760 each spring. The students were given the responsibility of choosing their project, then designing and building it. Several have been published. The microcontroller used is the Atmel ATmega series. This year we use the Mega644 microprocessor and WINAVR/GCC compiler. Before 2009, we used the Codevision C compiler. Many projects are on Send comments to Bruce Land, Electrical and Computer Engineering.
