Duration: – 1 month (minimum_
Start date: – December, 2012
Stipend: – Rs. 10,000 -Rs. 15, 000 per month + a certificate will be provided on completion of internship. There is also an opportunity to secure summer internship position for 2013.
Internship specific question: – Along with your application please upload answers to the following internship specific questions (.pdf, .doc, .rtf, <1MB): -
1) What are your thoughts on the way programming is taught at the school level and how ‘introduction’ to programming is handled at the college level?. How would you go about teaching programming to 14 year olds? What platform/s would you use? What programming language would you recommend the person starts with?
2) What is open drain? Where and why is it employed? Give examples of 2 protocols which use open drain as the physical implementation. Use Eagle Layout editor (or any other schematic entry tool) to schematically show the physical implementation.
3) There is a robot which contains a micro-controller board and a few sensors for line following. The micro-controller board also has 2 switches, an LCD and a serial port. Now, if someone presses the first switch, the following processes will take place simultaneously: calibration of the sensors and the LCD showing the sensors output. As the second switch is pressed, the robot starts following the line and simultaneously, LCD shows the following status: SWITCH 2 PRESSED + ROBOT IS FOLLOWING LINE. Now, if at serial port, the controller receives some data then it has to dump that data to program memory, while LCD will show the Code is Burning. Write your approach to solve this problem and the code as well. You can choose any 8 bit controller. Also explain why you choose the specific controller for this task.
