COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EE487 EMBEDDED SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT 2019 2 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course teaches students how to employ microcontrollers and single-board computers in the designs of embedded systems through applied exercises. Microcontrollers are programmed at the register level using the C language. Students conduct a detailed study of common microcontroller peripherals with an emphasis on their application to real-time control design. Cadets are exposed to addressing, serial and parallel input and output, timing, interrupts, A-to-D and D-to-A conversion. Subsequently, students study single-board computers and apply them in more complex designs. The basics of operating systems are taught using Linux and Robot Operating Systems. Emphasis is placed on linking peripherals to the processor and using multiprocessing. Throughout the course, students practice top-down and state machine design for moderately complex digital systems.

EE487 EMBEDDED SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT 2014 2 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course teaches students how to employ microcontrollers in the design of an embedded system. Cadets are introduced to the C programming language, which is the foundation for programming embedded systems. Students conduct a detailed study of common microcontroller peripheral devices with emphasis on their application to real-time control design. Cadets practice top-down design of both hardware and software components of moderately complex digital systems throughout the semester. Cadets are exposed to addressing, serial and parallel input and output, timing, interrupts, A-to-D and D-to-A conversion. Additionally, real-time operating systems will be introduced through the use of programmable devices and soft-processors. The cadets will learn the basics of implementing an operating system on an embedded device and linking peripherals to the processor via the operating system.
