After working with FEZ now for a bit, i have decided that it really will be a great solution for some in house projects - starting with test fixtures. I work for a really big company that makes big hardware. My plan is to put together a class of 5 two hour sessions with lecture and lab and give each student a kit with a FEZ Panda and a set of accessories. [Management just gave approval in the middle of typing this]
The students will be seasoned electrical and mechanical engineers - people familiar with motion control, environmental measurement, vibration and sound studies, power consumption experts, etc. Most of them will not be software engineers, but some will be deep embedded software people. i am planning on 10 students per class (at least at first). I may have as many as 40 run through the class before I am done.
The goal is to give these engineers a way to do their research and refinement inexpensively with off the shelf components - and some custom components when necessary. This would replace some of the custom PCB design and LabView stuff we do all the time.
I would really like to hear any input or advice - especially if you have done anything similar.
Thanks, you guys are always great!
