Embedded Hands-On Workshop: Prototype an IoT Sensor Node with a Microchip MPLAB Xpress Eval Board

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
With a complimentary MPLAB Xpress Eval Board, attendees will learn how to develop an embedded sensor node prototype that captures humidity, temperature, and pressure data. They will speed through configuration of the Microchip microcontroller and Bosch BME280 sensor using MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) graphical programming interface. The tool will generate free libraries with simple APIs so attendees can spend time working on their solution instead of messing with registers or communication protocols.

Attendees do not need to install any tools on their computers, as this entire workshop will use the cloud based MPLAB Xpress IDE. All sensor data will be graphed on their computer via an on-board USB-to-serial adapter. Attendees will be shown how to move the solution to a wireless communication method using the same tools, transforming from a simple wired sensor to an IoT or wearable solution.


Attendees must bring:
  • A computer with Wi-Fi, Windows/Mac/Linux OS, a standard browser and an available USB port (be sure to have the latest version of Java installed)
  • A Micro USB cable
  • A terminal program, such as Putty, CoolTerm, or TeraTerm
