Faculty Development Programme

By MVJCE

The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, MVJ College of engineering conducted an Faculty Development Programme(FDP) on “Programming in real time processors” in association with Texas Instruments, National Instruments and IETE. This FDP is planned for one week to write programs on Texas Instruments TIVA-C series processors and LabVIEW software. On first two days, Mr. Sagar Minchinal (speaker) coming from Edgate technologies Pvt ltd (Texas Instrument’s university program partner) for giving the hands on-training about Texas Instruments TIVA-C series processor (TMC123C). The next three days CLAD trainers of MVJCE gave the hands on training about LabVIEW and on sixth day speakers from IETE have presented about real time applications of the Digital Signal processors. The detailed report about the FDP is given as below:

Day 1
Inaugural function is started on 9.30am in the Seminar hall-4. The co-coordinators, Mr.K. Mohaideen abdul kadhar and Mrs. Aparna welcomes the speaker, dignitaries and participants of the FDP.
On session-1, speaker introduce about the Texas Instrument’s processors family.
On session-2, speaker explained about the TIVAWARE and Code Composer studio (CCS) software and gave the training about how to configure the CCS with the TIVA-C series TMC123G kit.
On session-3, Speaker gave the details about General Purpose IO pins in the TIVA-C series TMC123G processor and hands on training are given to the faculties to configure the CCS with the TI’s processor kit.
