Creating a Drawbot with ARM Cortex-M3 EFM32
A Drawbot is a robot that can draw pictures using a pen, much like a plotter or a printer. However, there are subtle differences. Unlike a regular printer or plotter, speed is not important. Part of the fun is watching a picture get drawn very slowly over the course of a day, or even a week! The Drawbot is not only an art drawing machine; it can be a part of the art itself, by being mounted on a wall.
Alf-Egil Bogen explores the shift to 32-bit MCUs in the embedded world
Alf-Egil Bogen, Chief Marketing Officer of Energy Micro, talks about the migration from AVR to ARM based microcontrollers over decades. It is interesting to see how microprocessor architectures have gone from being a significant differentiator to being a “not important” factor. Being one of the inventors of the AVR the transition to ARM has been a long journey. How long will this trend last and what is next?

Hack-a-Gecko Project: Beer Temperature Tester
How can you tell which beer is cold enough and others are not? The project is designed to find which beer has the best temperature to drink at the moment. The team used 24 LM35 Precision Centigrade analog temp-sensors mounted at the bottom of the beer case to measure the beer can temperature. The sensors were then connected to the EFM32 Giant Gecko development kit.
