Module contents
Embedded systems support complex feedback problems, control problems and data processing tasks. They have an important value creation potential for telecommunications, production management, transport and electronics. The functionality of embedded systems is realised by the integration of processors, special hardware and software. The embedded systems design is influenced by the heterogeneity of system architectures, the complexity of systems and technical and economic requirements. This module gives an initial review of computer architectures. After that embedded systems are introduced by a specific microprocessor. Furthermore, external hardware will be connected to the microprocessor. Besides this, the design of circuit boards will be discussed. The students will design, develop and implement a circuit layout with CAD and programme this embedded system with a Flash-eprom.
