Intro to XMOS Multicore Microcontrollers


Sponsored By: XMOS

  XMOS has an interesting line of multicore (from 6 to 16 logical cores).  The XMOS XCore architecture combines parallel processing, 64-bit DSP functions, deterministic operation, and the ability to implement software-defined peripherals and interfaces.   All students will receive an XMOS StartKit Development Kit  to keep after attending the class!

The What

A 2 hour introduction to the XMOS multicore microcontrollers.  We will cover:

  • Intro to the XCore architecture
  • Intro to the XMOS development and programming tools
  • How to use the XMOS StartKit
  • Programming parallel tasks with the XC programming language
  • Communicating between threads
  • Accessing I/O ports

The Who

The Instructor is:

Bill Jago:

Electrical Engineer with experience with multiple different microcontroller architectures.

The Where

The instruction will take place in the Classroom @ PaxSpace Inc

The Requirements


  • No specific prerequisites are required
  • Basic C/C++ programming knowledge is a plus but not mandatory
  • Basic electronics knowledge is also a plus


Equipment and Supplies


  • An XMOS StartKit will be provided to each student
  • PaxSpace and/or student owned computers will be used for programming exercises
  • XMOS development tools are multi platform (Linux, Windows, OSX), so bring your own laptop if you want to get the tools setup.
