This course presents applications of embedded systems and their specifics. It is expected that the students have had a programming course, and thus the course is more oriented on explaining and describing the blocks and functions of embedded systems and their use in signal processing, rather than writing code.

After completing this course, students should have an overview of usability and power of available processors, and their peripherals, on the basis of which, they should be able to independently design embedded systems for a wide spectrum of applications.


Basic knowledge of C / C ++ programming language

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Microprocessor and microcontroller in an embedded system, requirements

2. Microprocessors and microcontrollers typically used in embedded systems

3. Application of 8-bit microcontrollers in a deep embedded system

4. Review microcontrollers with 32-bit architecture ARM7, ARM9, Cortex M3

5. Analog Inputs and outputs ( ADC, DAC, filtration, input protection)

6. DSP´s used in embedded systems, their specialised blocks and functions

7. Review basic methods of digital signal processing and their implementation in embedded system

8. Input of a image signal to the embedded system (CMOS image sensor interfacing, DMA controller)

9. Design of embedded system with more microcontrollers, tasks partition

10 Design of a reliable and fault tolerant embedded system

11. Review of application of typical embedded systems

13. Individual project solution

14.Submission of individual project, presentation of projects, evaluation, assesment

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to provide students an overview of functional capabilities, performance and peripheral devices, input and output blocks, which will enable them to orientate in the choice of microprocessor and microcontroller in a given embedded system and its subsequent use and programming.
