META ForthTV Workshop

|

1 juni 2007: Afgelopen weekend deed ik mee aan een META Workshop in Amsterdam. META staat voor [[Making Electronic Thingies in Amsterdam]]. De workshop onder leiding van Tom Schouten ging over het genereren van televisie signaal met behulp van de programmeertaal Forth en een PIC chip. Bekijk het filmpje voor een sfeerimpressie.

Date: 26th-27th of May Time: 10.00h - 18.00h. Place: [[Steim]] Subject: Forth TV This workshop will stand in the light of the forth interpreter on the pic chip. Forth enables you to program your pic life and thus edit and see the changes in behavior right away. By learning to control tv tubes with forth this workshop will cover.. * introduction forth, the forth toolchain. * interactivity, giving commands and updates to a live system * modularity, solve problems in pieces and interactive testing technical applied, * electronic 2 bit DAC with resistors for 4 levels (sync,b/w,grey) * logic, PAL sync & stuff * software, interrupts (hsync timer) & multitasking * individual project, build some pic powered visuals with the knowledge gained.

His main interests are in generative systems, more specificly programs and devices that produce artistic works. His current efforts are concentrated on creating a series of special purpose programming languages. One of them is based on FORTH and runs on a pic microcontroller.
