Reinier van der Leer

I am an Electrical Engineering student, but studying was never my strong suit. I like to build things, take up projects and make things happen. That's also how I landed in the organization of SHA2017, and in the badge team for MCH2022 as project lead.

Projects of my own include the Metertrekker (a device to extract information from modern Dutch electricity meters), a cheap DIY induction loop amplifier to accommodate (on a budget) people with hearing aids,, and various other web-based projects, some of which are proprietary.

I'm very interested in efficiency and sustainability in general, and in effective and engaging education. You can follow me on Twitter to see some of the random things I stumble across or think about in life. :)


Badge workshop

Not sure if this will happen, that fully depends on the availability of volunteers to give this workshop.

Might also become a FGPA workshop by Lattice.

MCH2022 Curated content
Badge talk
Anne Jan Brouwer, BADGE.TEAM, Reinier van der Leer, Renze Nicolai, RobotMan2412

A high bar set by earlier creations, a pandemic, a postponed event and chip shortages made for a great challenge and a wild adventure creating the MCH2022 badge. This talk explains how we pulled off our most advanced creation yet. We will tell you about the process of converting a vague idea into a piece of electronics, including the prototyping process and the difficulties we encountered.

Badge FPGA Workshop
Reinier van der Leer

The MCH2022 badge contains an FPGA: a very powerful piece of technology, but possibly somewhat daunting to get started with. This workshop aims to get you started with FPGA development, and to teach you the potential of this new and versatile technology.
