The student will get an overview of Embedded C programming, and she will understand how to use it in implementing embedded applications for 8-bit and 16-bit microcontroller architectures. The student will then be asked to select a challenging project from a list of problems given by the instructor. The student is also encouraged to propose a project of her choice, but it must be accept by the instructor. The student will make the required research to solve the problem, make the analysis, design the solution and implement it. It is recommended to implement the solution on the Atmel microcontroller. It is also possible to implement the solution using Renesas, Raspberry Pi or any other similar 8-bit or 16-bit microcontroller architectures.
135 h, which contains 70 h of scheduled contact studies.
The assessment of student’s own learning 1 h is included in contact lessons.
