New at PHDays: Hardware Village
March 29, 2016
This year, we are launching Hardware Village at Positive Hack Days. Visitors are invited to inspect a whole heap of equipment and to participate in hands-on labs where Hardware Village developers will share their knowledge of hardware programming and hacking.
Hardware Village runs over two days and is open to both experienced and novice hardware geeks. The first day is dedicated to wired networks and data transfer interfaces: Ethernet, 1-Wire, UART, JTAG, SPI, USB, CAN. The Hardware Village team will advise on how to choose the right equipment for your needs and how to use it correctly. Visitors will learn about multimeters, oscilloscopes, and logic analyzers and will explore homemade hacking devices on Arduino, ARM, and FPGA.
The second day looks at wireless networks that work in the frequency range from 125kHz to 5GHz and popular data exchange technologies (RFID, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth). The Hardware Village organizers have also prepared an SDR hands-on lab and a hacking contest.
Remember to bring along any of your own devices for the hands-on sessions. We look forward to seeing you there.
