Open.embedded intro

  1. 1. Open.EmbebeddedNew and Different Way To Learn Embedded
  2. 2. Products Available Today Ask your parents about the changing technology of products that you use every day like -  Telephone  Air Con  TV  Micro Wave Oven  Washing Machine  Traffic Lights  Elevators
  3. 3. Whats Now Landline phones comes with caller ID. Airconditioners comes with remote control, timer and sleep functions. Music is stored on Pen Drives and flash memory cards. Radio does not have any tuning knob, just switches to select next channel. Train fare gets deducted at the touch of a card of the size of visiting card and you can see the balance on display.
  4. 4. How Does It Happen It happen due to a small size chip popularly knows as micro controller. This is nothing but a computer in small size. With Built in processor, memory, ram, I/O devices, Timer like in a PC. It is programmed in C (or at times in Java or Python)
  5. 5. Let me share my experience The first micro processor that I used in year 1979 was Intel 8080 and it was really amazing. A few ic put togther can be programmed to do lot of things. Very soon it was 8085, less number of Ics and only 5V supply. The previous version required three supplies +12V, +5V and -5V. And then the wonder of wonders happened by 8048. Just a single ic compared to minimum of five for 8085.
  6. 6. How it progressed over the years During last few years, we have moved from OTPs / UVEPROM/MASK Ics to Flash programmed parts. From expensive emulators and programmers now there are low cost tools costing Rs 5,000/- or even upto Rs 1000/- each. Assembly level language is replaced by C and now there are lot of code generators that results in quick development.
  7. 7. What will happen in future Today you find PC in every home and office. And around 10 embedded controllers in every home in devices like car, motorcycle, micro wave over, washing machine, security systems and even voltage stabiliser. This figure is riseing and you will find even low cost devices like tube lights to be fitted with embedded controllers (by the way, we sold over 20,000 controller for a dimmable tube light ballast last year)
  8. 8. The Challenge Unfortunately things are not changing in our colleges. Specially when it comes to electronics. Today a CS students use laptop with i3 processor and work on Windows/Vista and learn Java and C# and .Net. However EC students still study 8051 that I learned when you were not even born. You will not find any commercial product using 8051 today.
  9. 9. What Industry is Using Like cars and mobiles and Tvs, there are multiple micro controllers and IDE. The range starts from 8 pin IC costing Rs 25/- upwards. Software is developed using variety of IDE and code generators. Focus is on speed and solution and not on simple and slow development.
  10. 10. What is GVC GVC is an electronic company Founded by Vinay Chaddha with 32 years of embedded experience Over 200 commercial products. GVC is incubated in Amity Univeristy Campus under a DST sponsered scheme. And has received seed fund of Rs 15 Lac from Ministry of Science and Technology And 5.25 Lacs from Ministry of MSME.
  11. 11. More about Vinay Vinay is an hoobyist. Believe in sharing knowledge. His first commercially successful product SET TOP BOX was put in public domain within 2 years. Another commercially successful product CALLER ID for landline was in open source domain withing six months. He has filed three patents till now.
  12. 12. What we are offering Training on Embedded thru Open.Embedded This is same as being provided to new engineers in GVC. Is latest, current and result in quick delivery of products.
  13. 13. How it is different Let me ask you a simple question – what do you want to do on day 1 when learning driving car  How to change Tyre or  How to drive first Similarly, we do not teach you about internals of micro controllers on day 1 (in fact, we start talking about internals only in last week).
  14. 14. What happens on Day 1 You get to start writing program, blink an LED, switch on/off bulbs, interface with PC, display your name on LCD Yes all this on Day 1 and you will understand how this is happening. And even make some changes and go thru the excitiment.
  15. 15. What happens in Week 1 You will be able to use at least three types of micro controller and three kinds of IDEs. And upto 10 different modules.
  16. 16. And in next few weeks With every passing week, you will develop more muscle and start working on complex modules and more complicated issues. And yes, speed will be slower in later weeks.
  17. 17. And by the time it is last week You will have access to GSM, USB port and upto 30 modules. And an opportunity to learn about internals.
