The goal Introduction of students with elements of integrated computer systems, micro controllers. Introduction of students with designing of digital systems based on micro controllers. Introduction of students with usage of developing tools.
The outcome Provide students with the ability to design independently digital systems based on micro controllers. Provide students with the ability to design independently embedded micro controller programs with or without operational system. Provide students with the ability to realize and test micro controller systems by usage of suitable developing environments.
Contents of lectures Micro controller, microprocessor. Architecture of microcontrollers. Power supplies and tact signals. Typical micro controller modulus. Connecting with memory devices and peripheries. Typical program. Assembler and higher program languages. Developing environment. Emulation and debugging.
Contents of exercises Examples of designing of digital systems using of microcontrollers. Examples of programming and usage of available resources in microcontroller.
