Learning activities and teaching methods
  • Preparation for classes - 160 hours per semester
  • Preparation for credit - 30 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The main aim is insight into the soft design of microprocessors. In particular, they lectured and trained topics related to design software for microcomputers. Inserting an operating system. The introduction repeats the mathematical foundations of Boolean algebra, basic gate arrays theory of sequential machines, etc. Then, a species and principles of microprocessors, their properties and register set, the bus connection and use interface to design boards. Instruction set computing the required number of cycles. General principles timers, AD / DA converters, UARTs and other principles periphery. Gradually, each connected peripherals and demonstrated the possibility of simulation and delivery of the necessary software related. Students are out of work on simulators and emulators. The last third of the course is designed for single-board computers connecting to the external environment, it is connecting wired and wireless networks and solitary device.
The student will be introduced to the design of microcomputers. Build, according to client's requirements, hardware from available components. Create simpler programs and embed in a microcomputer. Tests of the proposed microcomputer system in real environment. Standard developing boards are used for teaching.
Basic course in C/C++ or java programming
