MICROCONTROLLERS AND DIGITAL DESIGN
Credit points: 15
Digital electronics and programmable microcontrollers are pervasive throughout the modern world, controlling everything from our communications and health systems through to transportation and entertainment. This subject covers the fundamentals of digital design and design with digital microcontroller. Topics covered include: digital logic, flip-flops, binary arithmetic, microcontrollers and serial communication. The course includes problem classes and laboratories which allow you to develop and debug digital circuits, and microcontroller systems which are programmed in Embedded C.
