In this subject students will focus on the real-world application of microcontrollers to perform task-specific functions. Design architectures include systems based on 8-bit micro-controllers through to 64-bit processors. Topics include RISC/CISC architectures, parallel architectures, hardware design, power management and embedded software considerations. The course includes practical applications and laboratory sessions that allow students to develop programs in C and assembly and run these programs on embedded systems. The laboratory work focuses on C applications for a Z8 encore microcontroller which is the microcontroller examined in detail in lectures.
