Electrical Engineering is all about abstraction. We hide complex details and features and work on high-level objects to make our work easier. However, this also means that most often, we do not know how something works internally, even though we might know how to use it, like op-amps. And one place, where we probably see… Continue reading A Beginner’s Guide to RISC and CISC Architectures

c2000 Piccolo F28027 LaunchPad – Tutorial 2

Hey! In this tutorial, we’ll be trying out our first code on the piccolo board. We’ll be doing the proverbial microcontroller “Hello World!” code: Blinking an LED. To do this, we’ll be using one of the four onboard LED’s. Starting a new project To start a new project, click on Project --> New CCS Project.… Continue reading c2000 Piccolo F28027 LaunchPad – Tutorial 2
