Welcome to this course on embedded systems for STM32: I2C protocol masterclass. The I2C communication protocol is a popular protocol that microcontrollers use to talk to various devices such as EEPROMS and NVRAMs, ADCs and DACs, I/O interfaces for port expansion, and a whole array of different types of sensors. This class goes in-depth into the theory behind the I2C protocol, why it was originally designed, what types of common formats are available, and how to implement I2C communication between a STM32 microcontroller, a LTC2990 current, voltage and temperature sensor and an OLED display.
- High quality video and audio experience
1080p video and studio quality audio make this course experience one of a kind.
- Enhanced hands-on learning
Our award winning teaching technique engages you in a hands-on way that makes learning fun and rewarding.
- Q&A support and guidance
To help you through the roadblocks and steer you through the challenges.
- Certificate of completion
On completion of the course, a certificate is awarded to you which showcases your mastery in the subject matter.
ADVANCED HANDS-ON LEARNING
Section 1 - In this section you will learn the theory behind the I2C protocol and how to implement it effectively.
Section 2 - In this section you will set up a free and open source development environment to program and debug ARM Cortex microcontrollers. If you have previously completed my course on the Foundations of ARM Cortex-M processors, then you may choose to skip to the next section.
Section 3 - In this section you will get hands-on experience on how to write the I2C drivers for the LTC2990 temperature, current and voltage sensor and the SSD1306 OLED display. You can take the knowledge learned in this section and apply it to any other I2C device of your choosing.
Section 4 - In this section you will unlock features of the I2C Shield with specially designed assignments. After each assignment I will show you my method of implementation for comparison.
"Excellent explanations, easy to understand"
- Lasal U., Engineering Student
"Really enjoyed the practical sessions. The MakerMax shield works great too, saved me a lot of trouble!"
- Brian G., Senior Applications Engineer
This course is created around the Nucleo series of boards from ST Microelectronics and MakerMax has designed specifically for this course a custom board that fits on top of the Nucleo board. The Nucleo board is available for purchase directly from ST Micro and the custom I2C board can be purchased on our website to allow you to get hands-on without having a whole electronics lab at your desk. Although this hardware is recommended, it is not mandatory. If you choose not to buy the hardware, you will still be able to follow along through all the lectures as I will show you my implementation. The best way to learn however, is to try and implement it yourself. If you have further questions on the hardware or anything else, send us a message! We would be more than happy to help you.
