More and more end equipment start to use proximity sensors to detecting the presence of nearby objects without physical contact by using electromagnetic fields, light or sound, e.g. major appliances, cell phones, robot and so on. There are many types, each suited to specific applications and environments. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor's target. Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. By analyzing the basic principle of different types of sensor, comparison result with advantages and disadvantages can be achieved.
These videos provide understanding of the fundamental functions used for rapid prototyping on TI solutions with minimal or no programming, including the following:
- Implementing necessary prototyping functions such clocks/GPIO, Read A/D, I2C/SMBus, etc.
- Seamless interface of various analog EVMs for customer “proof of concept”
- Standalone UI – Button, (GP Input - GPIO), LCD Display (“Hello”), Music, Serial Interface (Putty, Echo)
How many times have you said, “I would like to prototype an idea with TI silicon but I can not get software resources" or “I don’t know how to prototype/program.”
This training shows you how to get started prototyping on TI solutions with minimal or no programming, including the following tasks:
