Microcontrollers are an inevitable part of a mixed circuit design. They are ‘the brain of the systems’ and has a huge application in almost all areas like embedded systems, power electronics, modern Electrical systems, instruments etc.

Engineers in fields such as electronic, electrical systems, instrumentation etc should learn microcontrollers and its programming for their works to complete. So learning microcontroller programming during the graduation course will be very good for the career of students. And, even the academic projects need some control circuitry.

We are providing AVR micro controller programming workshop, which is the widely used 8 bit microcontroller in the industrial manufactured by microchip (Previously Atmel). AVRs had wide range of application & availability and are easily available at low cost.

Our workshop is very systematically designed so that the students can understand the basics well, can do programming of its various peripherals and special features. Our workshop is purely hands-on and the students can write the code by their-own, test it using Simulator and final testing using AVR trainer kits. Also for better learning & understanding we included a mini project session in which students are asked to do a project using the trainer kit.

Proposed Programme Highlights

  • Two day exclusive training on Atmel AVR Programming
  • 80% of training will be hands-on / Practical sessions
  • Specially designed AVR *Trainer Kits for testing the code.
  • ATMEL Studio 7 IDE for coding.
  • Follow up trainings and continued support are offered even after current training, based on request
  • 90 day free online support.

 *Trainer Kits are not takeaway Kits

Expected outcome

After completion of this workshop, the participants can program the AVR micro controller for many application and projects.
