WEEK11: networking and communicationsThis week we studied ways circuits can talk to each other. We discussed wired links, such as SPI and I2C, and sped up the internet stack, touching on TCP/IP, PHYs, and all the other layers that make sites like this possible. Then we shifted gears and examined various types of wireless networking; WiFi, Bluetooth, and various ISM protocols. All of the methods were examined in the context of embedded electronics; the WiFi section, for instance, included a number of ESP32-based hello-world examples. Our assignent this week was twofold: first, design, build, and connect wireless or wired nodes with network or bus addresses; and second, send a message between two projects. I attempted but (as of the day of class) failed at the first, and didn't approach the second; to be fair, I'm not sure anyone else used the same radio protocol, so perhaps that part of the assignment can slide.
