- Study Objective:
The aim of the course is to teach students embedded system design and programming. Microcontroller and embedded processor-based systems are considered. Emphasis is given on commonly used integrated peripherals, their programming and utilization in applications. Modern computer interfaces such as USB and BlueTooth are also included. Laboratories are oriented practically. In a collection of tasks, students get experience in software development in C and development tools.
