Course Objectives: This course is a hands-on course that requires writing software as well as board-level work. It sits at the intersection of fields such as microprocessors, digital design, operating systems, software design, and industrial automation. The students are exposed to topics such as meeting real-time constraints in embedded systems, generating delays and interrupts, using the serial interface, etc. They get theoretical as well as hands-on experience on embedded system design by using embedded software development environments and hardware emulators, as well as by working on actual hardware where they physically connect multiple building blocks.
