NOTE: According to the Academic Calendar, this Wednesday, 3/20, follows a MONDAY SCHEDULE FOR DAY CLASSES. We WILL meet as scheduled on Wednesday.

Topics for 3/18:
We will have an introduction and discussion of the BS2 Professional Development Board and the StampWorks text. These are the boards you will use for many of your experiments after Spring Break beginning in Week #9. The documents for the BS2 Professional Development Board and the StampWorks Manual can be found here. (Note this link brings you back to the 2016 Spring semester, so do not post any information in the old forums.)

The StampWorks Manual of experiments and the BS2 Professional Development board are designed to allow the experimenter to construct relatively advanced circuits & programs with a minimum of hardware construction. Please treat the BS2 Professional Development Boards carefully. They are in short supply and are no longer available. You MUST work in teams of 2 for these experiments.

Topics for 3/20:

On Wednesday, 3/20, we are following a Monday Schedule to compensate for the Monday we will lose on 4/15. O this day we will discuss Stepper Motor Control & the ultrasonic PING Sensor.

Stepper Motor Speed and Torque Relationship

In addition, we have this Wisc-Online Tutorials:

Variable Reluctance Stepper Motor

Stepper Motors and Micro-Stepping.

PING Sensor:

Time permitting, we will also start the discussion on the ultrasonic PING Sensor.

The PING Ultrasonic Sensor is one of the required labs you will have to perform before the end of the semester.

Here's the link to the PING Sensor from Parallax and here is the Chapter from the Smart Sensors Text using the PING sensor. These are the exercises you should perform when using the PING.
