  • Arduino for Beginners

    Arduino for Beginners

    Arduino is a prototype platform (open-source) based on an easy-to-use hardware and software. It consists of a circuit board, which can be programed (referred to as a microcontroller) and a ready-made software called Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment), which is used to write and upload the computer code to the physical board. Arduino provides a standard form factor that breaks the functions of the micro-controller into a more accessible package. This course is intended for enthusiastic students or hobbyists. With Arduino, one can get to know the basics of micro-controllers and sensors very quickly and can start building prototype with very little investment. This course is intended to make you comfortable in getting started with Arduino and its various functions.

  • The purpose of network hardware and protocols

    The purpose of network hardware and protocols

    A detailed investigation into the operation of the protocols within the TCP/IP protocol suites, discussing the services they provide for user applications. Network device operation is examined in more detail, with particular attention paid to how they interact with the TCP/IP protocols within the LAN. NAT is revisited in order to investigate its operation in larger networks, where multiple devices require its services.
