Learning Outcomes

After the course, the student knows the development procedures of embedded systems, and student is able to develop a small-scale device with software. Student understands the project-kind nature of the development of embedded systems.

Student's Workload

135 h, which contains 50 h of scheduled contact studies.

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

Microcontroller Laboratory Exercises, Design of Digital Devices.


During the course, the student becomes familiar with the development process of a micro-controller-based device. Student will also learn how to develop the electronic and the software interface for peripheral devices. Exercises will give practical guidance to different programming structures and programming environments, and to the use of them for developing a prototype of an embedded system. Micro-controller-dependent programming is done with the C language.
