ST Launches IoT Course "Understanding Embedded Systems with SensorTile"

  •  Professor William Kaiser, UCLA, the first embedded system for first-year students taught in the introductory engineering course Hands-On Development Course: Developing IoT Real-Time Embedded Systems with SensorTile
  • Only cost less than $ 100 for hardware and (free) registration

STMicroelectronics, the world's leading semiconductor supplier across multiple electronic applications, announced today that everyone, including students, makers, rookie engineers and computer scientists, can learn "Introduction to Embedded Systems with SensorTile "course (Learn Embedded Systems with SensorTile).Includes a teaching course developed by Professor William Kaiser at UCLA for freshman computer engineering classes to provide the foundation for understanding the fundamentals of sensor-based IoT embedded systems. STMicroelectronics encourages professors from other universities to adapt this course.This set of 8 self-paced tutorials consists of SensorTile designs from STMicroelectronics. SensorTile is a unique real-time embedded system with IoT capabilities integrated into a stamp-only module. The 13.5mm x 13.5mm miniature module integrates a high-performance, low-power STM32 Arm-Cortex-M microcontroller, five practical MEMS sensors and a Bluetooth network processor. Five of the sensors are accelerometers, gyroscopes, electronic compasses, pressure sensors and microphones. Development kits that include modules, cables, docks, and batteries cost about $ 80 at major distributors.William Kaiser is a professor at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at UCLA and is currently the current director of the Research and Collaborative Embedded Networking Technologies Research Group at UCLA, winner of the Gold Shield Prize 2007 at the University of California, Los Angeles. "Our eight free online tutorials in cooperation with STMicroelectronics, along with technical documentation, open source algorithms and development solutions, and an ever-expanding user forum with no restrictions are a great way to ensure community sustainability Approach, we want to expand the community of development to various colleges, including community colleges, and even to high school classes and self-learners, "said Professor William Kaiser. "In fact, as we made our tutorial simple but useful, we knew that novices would encounter learning disabilities in some places and we rely on the enthusiasm of community users to help newbies overcome the inevitable obstacles."John Rossi, Vice President, Strategic Americas, STMicroelectronics, Americas, said: "Professor Kaiser's passion and dedication to the development of the 'Introduction to Embedded Systems with SensorTile' curriculum is key to the success of the course, which is now part of the University of California, Los Angeles A compulsory part of all computer engineering students.For ST, the driving force of this project is that we want to create passion for engineering and problem solving to us and emphasize our slogan, "Where does the semiconductor have a positive impact on human life, There are ST's semiconductors.
