It’s been a gorgeous (and desperately hot) summer out here so far, and we can’t think of a better way to spend an oppressively hot day than to switch on a fleet of oscillating fans, pile on some ice packs, and enjoy some of the latest events and projects that Digilent’s blog has to offer! We’ve also been harnessing the seemingly infinite energy of a few new interns to aid us in the prep for ASEE, so be sure to check back for updates on the conference later next week.
Interesting things around Digilent:
|Heading to ASEE to Discuss How We Can Help: Engineering Bundles Save Time & Money|
|Open-Source MRK+Line robot – looking for open-source parts to build a robot? We’ve been working hard to bring this open-source plan to fruition.|
|Building Logic Gates with Transistors – a fantastic continuation of the logic gate posts.|
|Fan Speed Control Using a Thermistor, LabVIEW, and myRIO – a creative and fascinating project from one of our new interns!|
