Martz Lab ARM Processor Development

Come hear about the Martz Lab development work on a new data acquisition system using ARM processors.  They have a near-final revision of a working controller based on an ARM Cortex-M4.

A number of groups are looking forward or are already working with ARM processors as a replacement for the ubiquitous Persistor CF2.  There are plans to put together a repository to share electronic designs and code across Scripps.  The Scripps Webgroup is currently testing a commercial GitHub from Atlassian (Stash, is the hosted version of this).   Atlassian offers features such as issue tracking and project management modules that work nicely together (

The Scripps Technical Forum (STF) is a grassroots effort to make technical expertise and resources more widely available within the UCSD/Scripps community; to enhance communications between technical staff and departments; explore extended opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration, technology transfer, and industry interactions; to explore innovative solutions to emerging challenges; to monitor and disseminate trends and new technologies; and, aid in personnel retention and enhance job satisfaction, including continuing education, and opportunities for job growth.

The group is open to anyone within SIO and UCSD interested in applied technology. We host a monthly midday meeting with free pizza and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry. Our monthly newsletter highlights events, people, places, and items.
