Stephan Barnard, Product development specialist, Noble Touch Limited

Attendees will be given (to keep) a micro-electronics kit which they can build during the talk. The kit contains electronic components such as, light and temperature sensors, switches, LEDs, prototyping breadboard as well as a micro-controller. The included micro-controller is used by professionals and serious amateurs for a vast range of projects such as robotics, autonomous vehicles, data logging, automation, music and art projects. This talk will explain the new revolution taking place in micro-electronics today. This revolution is allowing companies on very tight budgets to produce cost effective prototypes very quickly. The entry barriers have now dropped to such a point that individuals at home can easily design and build prototype boards without the usual expense associated with embedded development.
