PhD student Mohamed Abdelazez (co-supervised Dr. Sreeraman Rajan) participated in the IET Present Around the World (PATW) competition. He won the Americas regionals and was the Americas representative at the Global Finals (London UK).

Wireless Data Logging System

The wireless data logging system (WDLS) is a development platform that enables for rapid prototyping. Features include:

  • single self-contained board with small form factor (2.6" x 2.6")
  • supports most PIC24, dsPIC33 and PIC32 controllers in 28-pin DIP package
  • socketed MCU allows for easy replacement of PIC
  • demo programs which exercise all capabilities (listed below) are available, with full source code
  • on-board Bluetooth radio and antenna
  • microSD card (up to 32GB) socket, fully compatible with Microchip's flash file storage libraries (MDD-FS)
  • 2 LEDs and 3 switches for general use
  • power and reset switches on board
  • powered from batteries (2x AAA) on back of board
  • can also be powered from an external 1.0V to 3.3V battery source
  • can be powered by an externally regulated 3.3V power source
  • onboard programming with PICkit interface
  • header pins can be added giving access to all processor signals when plugged into a standard solderless breadboard
  • alternatively, header pins can be added giving access to all processor signals by a plug-in daughter board
  • includes technical documentation
