Use the Ada programming langauge and the STM32 family of micro-controllers to make a piece of electronic test equipment. We propose using a source measurement unit (SMU) as a good initial project. SMU's are very flexible and broadly useful pieces of equipment for electronics engineering, but have traditionally only been available from major test equipment vendors and at a cost that excludes most hobbyists. In recent years many low cost or "homebrew" solutions for test equipment have been documented on the internet, but to our knowledge very few home made SMU's have been built.
