- Department of Microelectronics
The goal of this course is to make students acquainted with recent interesting applications, smart sensors circuits and peripherals handled by microcontrollers. In a lab students will program their own application and measure its properties. Because of usage of a programming language C it will be possible to focus on the practical part of the realization.
