About this Course:
This course covers embedded system design fundamentals. Working with various microcontrollers, microprocessors, and DSPs, the student will discover hardware, software, and firmware design tradeoffs, tool chains, and best practices in current embedded systems development. Laboratory exercise and experience reinforce the lecture concepts. A course project encapsulates all topics culminating in an embedded system designed and implemented from the ground up. The student should be familiar with analog and digital design methods, computer architecture and structured/procedural programming techniques.
Who Should Attend:
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Demonstrate proficiency in using a VOM meter to measure power values
- Produce an electronic research-based report on an electronic device
- Build an electronic kit and understand the principles and theory of operation
- Complete an embedded systems circuit design and present the actual implementation of the device
Grading/CEU for this course includes assignments, quizzes and projects.
