Michael's blog about teaching, hardware, software and the things inbetween

Blast from the past!

August 05, 2017 — Michael Engel

It's almost a year since I started my new job as Professor for Embedded Systems at Coburg University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Luckily, I did not have to start completely from scratch, but was able to build upon more than three decades of work by my predecessor, Prof. Hilmar Missbach, who retired this spring (thanks a lot for all your support, Hilmar!).

In three decades, a lot of stuff accumulated in hidden corners of some drawers. The greatest item I have found so far is an original set of intel IC's from the early 1970s - an i4004 CPU and two 320 bit (80x4) SRAMs.
