Greetings from IP Workshop and hello again!

This is my second post on the blog since the RSoC 2014 started and I am very excited about how things are going. Me and Matei did some very interesting stuff during this time and learned a lot about our project and I think the way we approach new challenges shows that.

Over the past weeks I managed to deal with the most provocative challenge until now – coding the Analog I/O functions. There are two processors on the UDOO board: Freescale iMx6 and Atmel Sam3x. The problem was that the user has access only to the iMx6 processor and Analog I/O cannot be controlled from there. Therefore, I spent a long time documenting on this topic and I realised how the processors can communicate with each other. I used firmata and serial port to make them work. [1]

I have also implemented the Time part and some of the Advanced I/O functions that allows you to work with a shift register. I made a few tests and code refactoring, too.

I am looking forward to successfully completing the wiring library coding part. You can find the reference about the wiring library here: [2].

Right now, I am participating at the IP Workshop [3] summer school at Tirgu Mures organized by my mentors and I am making the best of it, trying to learn as much as I can. I attend the Internet of Things course. It is a good time to test all the features that I implemented on the UDOO board till now and ask about every vagueness.

Stay tunned for my next post!
