In this subject you will focus on the real-world application of micro-controllers 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..
