EECE-4920 Senior Design Project - Guest Lectures

This is a list of invited guest lectures I have made in the Senior Design Project course.

Lecture #1 (S16): Wireless Technologies: Wi-Fi
This is a presentation meant to be a brief introduction to Wi-Fi and the ESP-01 Wi-Fi module (uses the popular ESP8266 circuit). The lecture also includes a demonstration that uses an Android app to control via Wi-Fi an 8x8 LED matrix connected to an Arduino board. Here are all materials you need to replicate the demonstration.
Lecture #2 (S17): Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)
This is an introduction to FPGAs. The lecture also includes a demonstration that uses an FPGA board to implement an edge detection algorithm (Sobel operator).
Lecture #3 (S18): Wireless Technologies: BlueTooth
This is an introduction to BlueTooth and the HC-06 BlueTooth module. The lecture also includes a demonstration that uses an Android app to control via BlueTooth a small step motor.
