STMicro Launches Embedded IoT-Enabled Curriculum

STMicroelectronics announces the availability to all, including students, makers, and budding engineers and computer scientists of the “Introduction to Embedded Systems with SensorTile” course. With a curriculum developed by Professor William Kaiser at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and used to teach his freshman engineering class, the online course resources provide a foundation to understand the fundamentals of a sensor-based Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled embedded system. Professors at other universities are also encouraged to adapt and contribute to the course.

 

The introductory course of 8 self-paced tutorials is designed around ST’s SensorTile, a unique real-time IoT-enabled embedded system on a postage-stamp-sized module. The tiny 13.5mm x 13.5mm module combines a high-performance, low-power STM32 Arm®-Cortex®-M-core microcontroller, 5 valuable MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) sensors—an inertial sensor containing an accelerometer and gyroscope, an eCompass, a pressure sensor, and a microphone—and a Bluetooth network processor. A kit with the module, cables, cradles, and a battery is available from major resellers for about $80.
