I started this website in my undergrad mid-college career when I first got introduced to the ARM7TDMI architecture. Since that time my interests in embedded development has exploded. As time progressed I have grown as an engineering student and so has my interests. So I feel that the title of ‘armjunkie’ is too constraining for what I really like. Electronics, MCUs, robotics, CNCs, 3D modeling, circuit design, embedded systems, etc…
So, as such, its time to rebrand as www.embeddedjunkie.com. I’m sure this will change in the future as I keep developing as an engineer. We should not fear change, but embrace it!
I finally got my Beagleboard shipped in. Its the single board computer as part of the Android dev kit. I’ll post pics soon. Still trying to get the DVI out working. BeagleTouch works though.
I’ve been accepted to USC! Masters of Science in Computer Engineering. Back to school FALL 2011. 🙂
Pics and videos coming soon.
Good, news everyone! Yes, you just read that as Professor Farnsworth. I made my first big purchase. Although its not entirely a shocking surprise, it’s a surprise nonetheless. Stay tuned for more info. 🙂
So my small stint as a part-time engineer has ended. I have accepted a job offer to work in the embedded field as a Software Engineer. This is fantastic news and I recognize how truly fortunate I am considering this economy. The new flow of monies into my account should allow me to further my projects very nicely. It’s been a crazy mixed-up journey so far, but it appears to have only just begun. No telling where I’m headed but lets see what develops along the way. 🙂
A new page is up, Plastic Casting Tutorial. Come and read up on my experiences using the Alumilite Mini Casting Kit. Every robot builder will need plastic parts sooner or later, give it a read!
Holy cow! I’m currently reading this book and strongly recommend it. Co-operative scheduling tasks is the best thing to happen since sliced bread. The best part???? You can start reading the book for free! Enjoy.
I read LabVIEW for Everyone from cover to cover, studied, took the exam, and passed! I am now a Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer. 🙂
