We are likely going to be in our usual room - 197 A and 197 B
Marked in red on this floorplan:

10:00  --- COFFEE

10:15  --- Digital Sampling Oscilloscope Interface --- CH Ting
Inspired by the iPod user interface, I'd like to improve the DSO
interface on my GameBoyAdvance by using more pull-down
menus, employ less keys, and make the operation more intuitive.
In my old design, I often forgot which keys to push after leaving
it for a few days.

Some folks bring their lunch, some folks go to Togos.


14:00 ---  Interesting Items - Volume 6 --- Dave Jaffe
Dave will continue his survey of interesting newly-introduced
microcontrollers, I/O peripherals, sensors, products, and
gadgets that can provide useful and unique capabilities to
Forth embedded systems. If anyone has come across
anything that fits this category, pass them along to him
for inclusion in his presentation.

FREE!  Links will be provided in the meeting notes for those
