This course presents applications of embedded systems and their specifics. It is expected that the students have had a programming course, and thus the course is more oriented on explaining and describing the blocks and functions of embedded systems and their use in signal processing, rather than writing code.
After completing this course, students should have an overview of usability and power of available processors, and their peripherals, on the basis of which, they should be able to independently design embedded systems for a wide spectrum of applications.
