ASK AN ENGINEER 11/13/19 8pm – SPECIAL GUEST: Microchip! (video).
Microchip supports the Maker Movement with MCUs and other devices and tools to bring innovative ideas to life and sharing creative projects with this growing community.
Rachel Beddor and Matthew Dickens will be joining us to talk all about Microchip’s role as a manufacturer and their smart, connected, secure solutions. The Microchip team will provide information about the 32-bit solutions, their role with cloud providers, IoT edge-to-node ecosystem solutions, and more!
We’ll talk about: resources, learning opportunities and the process of going from prototype to production.
Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of microcontroller, analog, memory and Flash-IP solutions, providing low-risk product development, lower total system cost and faster time to market for thousands of diverse customer applications worldwide.
What is “Ask an engineer”? From the electronics enthusiast to the professional community – “Ask an Engineer” has a little bit of everything for everyone. If you’re a beginner, or a seasoned engineer – stop in and see what we’re up to! We have demos of projects and products we’re working on, we answer your engineering and electronics questions and we have a trivia question + give away each week.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
