American Control Conference Portland Recap

Digilent recently attended the pre-conference workshop session at the American Control Conference (ACC) at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon. We were there to provide support for the Analog Discovery, which was being showcased in the pre-conference workshop “Ubiquitous Hands-On Learning: The Future of Engineering Education”. Workshop speakers included Bonnie Ferri, Al Ferri, and Deborah Warner. In addition to the presenters, 9 attendees were there. After discussing student involvement in engineering education, participants were able to play with various test and measurement devices.

zUNO Clip for chipKIT

As the chipKIT ecosystem and user base continue to expand, there’s a growing need for more flexible ways to mount these boards. After all, the standard form factor hole-pattern leaves much to be desired when it comes to mounting your host board into your project. Which is why we created the zUNOTM Clip for chipKIT, Arduino, and Arduino form-factor boards.
