CC2511 - Embedded Systems Design

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: School of Engineering (pre 2015)

The design of microprocessor based systems for instrumentation and consumer electronics: microprocessor programming; microprocessor architecture; peripherals; interfacing techniques; embedded C programming and testing; computer aided design (CAD) tools for circuit schematic and printed circuit board design and manufacture; a design project to demonstrate interfacing and real time control of electro-mechanical systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • justify and apply the design techniques used in the design project and communicate this to others;
  • design and construct microprocessor based embedded systems using computer aided design tools to meet specific design criteria;
  • describe and apply appropriate techniques for interfacing instrumentation sensors and actuators for the operation of computer controlled electro-mechanical systems;
  • describe and undertake the hardware and software design of real time microprocessor based instrumentation and control systems.
