2018/01/22 Lolibot, FPGA Primer, MicroPython for ESP8266/ESP32 and Protocol Analysis at Open Hardware Miniconf at Linux.Conf.au 2018
π 2018-01-22 01:01 in Arduino, Linux
Got to play with a lot of hardware at LCA 2018:
  • ESP32 micropython programmed robot
  • Learned the very basics (and pains) of how to program an FPGA
  • MicroPython programming and handling
  • Protocol Analysis (1wire) with a USB protocol sniffer.
  • Definitely worth the time I spent, even if some miniconfs made me miss a bunch of talks, but it was worth it :)

    Lolibot:







    our fearless team was honest about how they do the work every year :)

    The next day, I went to the FPGA training/miniconf:

    FPGAs are definitely 'interesting', you can use some of the gates to emulate a CPU, and others to run bare metal code

    It was useful to learn more about MicroPython the next day, definitely a faster way to work on ESP8266/ESP32 SOCs:

    Tim nicely setup a hardware rig to flash the little TOMU boards that fit in your USB slot:


    The last day, we learned how to use a USB logic analyser to debug 1wire timing issues:


    protocol analysis is what Tridge eats for breakfast ;)
