Embedded Systems (Undergraduate)

This module provides a practice-oriented introduction to embedded real-time systems. The main topics are (1) Modelling and simulation in UML and state-of-the-art tools; (2) Basic concepts of micro-controllers; (3) Real-time systems with interrupts and schedulers; (4) Real-time operating systems: processes and communication; (5) Energy aware design and construction; (6) Debugging and testing as part of software development processes.

Microprocessor Systems Design (Undergraduate)

This module examines the structure, applications and programming of microcontroller and similar devices. There will be practical work on using the devices as part of the module. Aims: * To impart an understanding of the architectures of microcontrollers microprocessors, and PIC devices. * To impart an understanding of the design issues in using microcontrollers and similar devices. * To enable students to make an informed choice of microcontrollers or similar device for a particular application. * To enable students to use microcontroller devices in electronic circuits.
