Mechatronics is ON Today!
We’re about to head down the hill and I wanted to send a note to let everyone know that we’re still having a meeting today.
We’re going to build a binary county and focus on how we’re addressing these ports with bitwise operators.
If we can get to it, we’ll build the alarm detection system.
These labs help us understand how the MSP432 ports are addressed and prep us for adding motors and sensors.
If you’re planning to stay home today, please try to spend some time in the curriculum to answer questions and learn more lessons in both the C and Embedded systems curriculum.
You can also add these video lessons to help augment the NATCAR curriculum.
