Hands-On Workshop: Real-Time DSP for Educators - Bridging Theory to Practice Using the TI LCDK DSP Kit

Sunday, August 11, 2013  12:30 p.m. to 4:20 p.m. (lunch provided)

Location: Sauvignon Room, Embassy Suites, Napa, CA

Instructors: Thad B. Welch (Boise State University), Cameron H.H. Wright (University of Wyoming) and Michael G. Morrow (University of Wisconsion - Madison)

al-Time DSP: A Hands-On Workshop Bridging Theory to Practice Using the TI LCDK DSP Kit

Attend this comprehensive hands on free workshop introducing real-time DSP for academics using TI’s latest OMAPL138/C6748 LCDK taught by authors/professors Welch and Wright. Bridging the gap from theory to practice is easily done w/ well developed resources and instructors who will lead everyone to incorporate these topics into an academic course. Discussions and implementation of talk through systems, FIR filters, sinusoidal signal generators, and follow on projects/systems will be provided. Introduction to winDSK8 and Code Composer Studio software with DSP hardware will be utilized.

Each participant will leave the workshop with a fully functional real-time DSP development system: DSP board, software development tools, getting started kit, and RT-DSP textbook, a $400+ value.

Hands-on Workshop: Moving Beyond DSP and Teaching Embedded Processors Using BeagleBone

Tuesday, August 13, 2013  12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (lunch provided)

Location: Sauvignon Room, Embassy Suites, Napa, CA

Instructors: Mark A. Yoder, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rose-Hulman Insstitute of TechnologyBad to the Bone

Get up and running in 5 mins! This hands-on workshop is BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) or use one of ours! You will take a BeagleBone Black (BBB) from out-of-the-box to blinking an LED in under 5 minutes. In under an hour you will see how you can embed your favorite signal processing applications.  

The BBB is a $45 community-supported development platform for developers, hobbyists and educators. The BBB is 1) more powerful and has more I/O than a Raspberry Pi, 2) is as easy to use as an Arduino and 3) has a thriving Open Source Software community.

The workshop activities will include 1) Several hands-on exercises to get participants familiar with using the BBB using BoneScript and Linux commands. 2) discussions of the wide variety courses where it could be used: from freshman programming to senior design and graduate projects courses and 3) demonstrations of what the BBB can do 4) resources available to help you get started today

Participants will receive a BeagleBone Black to take home.
