@Funkyguy Good evening. It's been alright.
Hey, you were thinking about taking a power electronics class on Coursera this fall. Did you end up taking it?

Hi folks. Anyone out there?
I'm just looking for someone who could answer this question of mine? Or maybe mention whether there's anything wrong with the question itself. The question is this: electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/134894/…
 
@Ricardo Nick's there.
 
By the way, how does one cite a question nicely formatted in the chat here?
hey @Nick

Q: AVR SPI slower than expected

Adam GriffinI'm running an ATMega88A at 8MHz and have the SPI configured to run at Fosc/2 = 4MHz. In theory, shifting out 5000 bytes over SPI should take 1/4000000 * 8 * 5000 = 10ms. But according to the internal timer, it's taking just over 19ms. This seems like a ton of overhead. Is this typical? Sample ...

@NickAlexeev yes, I was thinking about it but I didn't take it in the end. I have an 18 credit semester as well as being the lead project coordinator for my universities IEEE branch. three of my six classes are project classes so I'm pretty busy

@Funkyguy I was going to ask about your impression of course. I couldn't take it this fall either. I've talked to the professor, though. He said that this is not the first time that this course is offered, and probably not the last.
 
sweet! Thats good to hear, I'm always looking to improve
