Posted on by Joey
This week, Shan will be sharing about his work to optimize underwater modems, and how to get started with electronics. We’re also giving away a Raspberry Pi to one lucky attendee, see you there!
Date/Time: Friday, August 29 at 6:30pm
Venue: Video Conferencing Room, #02-13, COM1, 13 Computing Drive, NUS
Free pizza is served before the talks.
Optimizing Underwater Modems and Other Hardware Fun!
Shan will talk about the evaluation of various single board computers, analyze power consumption, and methods to reduce power draw when not needed. Shan will also talk about a total dissolved solids meter he designed and failed to scale up (so all you hardware folks don’t do the same mistakes). He’ll also give tips to help get you started with hardware, it isn’t that hard ;)
Shan, the self-confessed hardware geek, is currently working at Subnero. He loves to tinker with his arduino and tear open anything that guzzles electricity and/or held by nuts&bolts. Shan is also a staunch advocate of open source software.
