MICROCONTROLLERS AND DIGITAL DESIGN
Credit points: 15
This subject covers fundamental digital design using microcontrollers. An MSP430 microcontroller is used in the laboratories as an example of low-power, 16 bit microcontroller which will be programmed by students. Topics for the subject include: microprocessor architectures, assembly language, Embedded C, interfacing (both digital and analog), serial communications and memory. The course includes problem classes and laboratories which allow the students to develop and debug software in assembly and Embedded C on their own microcontroller boards.
