146: The Loyal Opposition

Philip Freidin (@PhilipFreidin) spoke with us about his BLE platform OSHChip, debuggers, and consulting.

Both the OSHChip and the CMSIS-DAP SWD programming module are on Philip's Tindie store. While Keil is the suggested compiler for now,  you can also use mbed (tutorial). The system is wholly open source, you can find everything at github.com/oshchip. (Philip gave an HDDG talk about OSHChip; we didn't talk about it but I thought it was interesting.)

Philip's company is Fliptronics. Under Tips and Tricks, that site has his advice on consulting.

Philip brought an OSHChip (left), debugger (right), and his own additions to the lightning round (above).
