Arduino Prototyping Techniques

Video description

You've created your first prototypes using the Arduino micro-controller, you understand how to input to it, output from it, and now you're ready for more. Maybe you even want to commercialize your prototype. This course transforms your Arduino prototypes from basic to advanced, presenting a new set of skills, techniques, and technologies you can use to make your prototypes more useful, robust, and perhaps... market ready.

  • Optimize projects with best practice bread boarding and wire management techniques
  • Build-in comms capability with LoRa radios, Xbees, Bluetooth LE, and cellular networks
  • Enable WiFi Internet access; connect to Cloud services; talk to iOS and Android phones
  • Measure time, store data to non-volatile memory, and read/write to SD cards
  • Discover flex PCBs, watch form factors, and other techniques for making wearables
  • Explore enclosure options like laser cut, 3D printed, and commercial enclosures
  • Get tips on avoiding regulatory problems and bringing a prototype to market
