Arduino club today. 03.09.20

We will have a short meeting today to discuss connecting up simple display devices (LCD, LED) so that your Arduino can give you information. If you've never hooked up an LCD before, there might be some useful information for you.

No electronics club meeting this week. 03.03.20

I will not be able to have a meeting today, so the club for this week is canceled. We will meet next week — probably an Arduino meeting to look at display methods and possibly begin talking about serial communications techniques.

Audio club meeting tonight02.24.20

5:30 p.m. in Coover 2222. This week, we will discuss the "Overnight Sensation" speakers and make plans for building some.

Arduino club meeting tonight02.17.20

5:30 p.m. in Coover 2222. Last week, I suggested that I could talk about displays (LCD, LED, etc) for Arduino, but I think I will have that for next time. Instead, I would like to propose two related Arduino projects that could also be Audio club projects and are connected to EE 230 activities.

Meeting tonight02.10.20

5:30 p.m. in Coover 2222. We will discuss the little GTDT amp, and what will be involved in building it as a kit, for anyone wanting to give it a try.

Meeting tonight02.03.20

5:30 p.m. in Coover 2222. No specific agenda, but I want to talk with folks about projects that we might do this semester.

One more delay01.27.20

A TA in one of my classes has had to leave town unexpectedly. Given the short notice, I will have to cover the lab that meets this afternoon/evening, meaning that I won't be able to have a club meeting this today. (Unless you all want to come out to MRC to meet in the EE 432 lab — it could be fun!) The other TAs and I will work out a temporary schedule for future weeks, and I expect that I will be not have to cover the late Monday after today. So we will aim for a meeting next week, unless some other other unexpected event somes sailing in to knock us off track.

Real first meeting for Spr 202001.20.20

While the "Monday @ 5:30" meeting time has many good aspects to it, the one downside that I had overlooked was the occasional Monday holiday. Since today is a university holiday, we obviously will not have a meeting today. So our first meeting of the semester will be Monday, Jan. 27 at 5:30 p.m. I will arrange a room.

First meeting for Spr 202001.13.20

Trying to have a meeting on the first day of the semester is probably not practical — particularly since I have three lectures today. So our first meeting will be next week, Jan. 20 at 5:30 p.m. I will arrange a room and come up with a slate of topics/projects. Topic suggestions are welcome!

No meeting this week12.09.19

I will have to cancel the Arduino club meeting for tonight. Dead week is starting out just a bit too busy. Besides, it’s probably better for everyone to spend time finishing class projects and getting ready for finals.

So our next meeting will be after Christmas break. We’ll plan to start on the first day of classes, which I think is Jan. 13. I’ll try to come up with a slate of meeting topics and projects for spring semester. If anyone has suggestions, please chime in.

Audio Club12.02.19

Audio club meeting this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in 3043 Coover. We will talk about some of the basics of audio amplifiers.

Christmas lists.12.01.19

While surfing, I noticed a couple of things that could be of interest to Arduino Club-ers as they prepare Christmas wish lists for Santa. AllElectronics has a relatively inexpensive Arduino kit that might fit a biggish Christmas stocking. It seems to have a pretty good collection of sensors and parts. (Of course, Amazon has a selection of kits, for those who are inclined to shop there.)

Arduino Club11.18.19

Arduino club meeting this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. We are back to the original room — 3043 Coover.

We are going to talk about how to build our own Arduinos.

Audio Club11.11.19

Audio club meeting this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. We have a different room this time — 2222 Coover, which near the main office and the upper entrance to the the auditorium. (This is a one-time change.)

We will take an initial look at speakers. We won’t be looking at the club sub this time. (It’s too heavy to drag around when the weather is bad.) Instead we will have a general introduction to speakers, examine an old blown-out speaker that I’m going to repair, and have a look at at some small speakers that we can build as a club project in the spring.

Ardunio Club11.04.19

Arduino Club meeting today, 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in Coover 3043. I'll give an overview of Arduino, intended mainly for newbies, along with a couple of simple projects.

The clubs return! 10.28.19

The first meeting is this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. in Coover 3043. We will talk a little bit about the clubs, talk a little bit about audio engineering, and describe the Altoids Amp project.

See the schedule for future activities.
