Texas Instrument Hands-On Workshop: Getting Started with TI LaunchPad and Energia
Get the ease of Arduino style programming with the low power and performance Texas Instruments LaunchPad evaluation kit. In this beginner, fun, hands-on workshop, students will enjoy using easy to follow Energia software examples. You’ll go from lighting LED’s to moving motors while we will build several breadboard projects with a variety of sensors, discrete and analog components from SEEED Studio’s SideKick Kit. Great preparation for capstone design, class or club projects. Pizza will be provided, and there will be drawings for LaunchPads, BoosterPacks, and prizes!
Participants will need to bring a laptop pre-loaded with the Energia software and a Hackster account set-up.
1. Download and install the latest version of Energia from http://energia.nu/
- Please note, depending on your OS you may need to install the drivers
- In Windows, Energia must be installed to a path without spaces in order to function properly.
