1 TI Mac. There are 3 streams: –The first one gives hands-on introduction to the Tiva microcontroller and adding wireless to this type of microcontrollers; –The second one discusses the more advanced MSP430 and interfacing sensors to it; –The third one discusses power-related applications including battery and motor controls. Every stream contains two workshops, one in the morning and the other one is in the afternoon. The first two streams will take place in MIP and the third stream will take place in MARC.
2 TI Mac. TI will give a presentation about the company and possible jobs available during lunch hour. The cost is $30 per attendee and all revenues are used to fund our Poster Day event. (Lunch fee is additional.) Time: Sept. 20, 2014 (Saturday) from 8:30am to 4:00pm Location: McMaster University MIP and MARC facilities on Longwood Road, between Main St. W and Aberdeen Ave. - very close to Hwy 403 exit "Aberdeen"
