|Module code||EMK 310|
|Faculty||Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology|
The module provides a project-based introduction to embedded design. General microprocessor architecture and firmware development are explored with a specific focus on memory and address decoding, general embedded programming principles, microprocessor input/output and interfacing with the real world, and the functioning and application of peripheral devices such as timers, ADCs, serial communication ports and PWM. Embedded design tools are introduced through the use of a microcontroller development board and integrated development environment (IDE) that serve as the primary learning platform. Students are exposed to current and new trends in the microcontroller industry.
