This class will provide descriptions and examples of Cellular use in IoT designs. The Renesas Synergy Platform and other implementations will be described. A short description of other wireless communication system will also be provided.
This class will provide an introduction to the Renesas Synergy Platform- the target used to provide example designs during the rest of the course. A description of each of the key hardware, software and documentation elements of the platform will be provided.
This class will provide descriptions and examples of some of the common techniques for managing components tightly coupled with the MCU- such as memory, sensors, analog components and digital communications links.
MCUs are the bricks on which the IoT is being built. This class will provide the background needed to understand why MCUs are used and how common IoT functions, such as power management, are implemented.
