Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 2+2L
The main aim of this subject is design of embeded systems using microcontrollers. It is mainly focused on 32-bit (alter. 8-bit) microcontrollers and DSP, supporting logic devices, external input/output devices and the other supporting devices.
Course outlines
1. Blocks of a embedded system
2. Microcontrollers, their peripherals, buses, digital signal processors
3. Microcontrollers used for laboratory experiments, interface, signals, timing
4. Logic devices, parameters, power consumption, grounding
5. Memories, RW-SRAM, FIFO, Duala ported, SDRAM, stucture, timing
6. Nonvolatile memories ROM, MASK ROM, EPROM, FLASH - NOR, NAND, memory cards
7. Input/output port, peripheral controllers interfacing (USAT, EThernet, CAN)
8. Interfacing - push buttons, keyboard, touch screen
9. Embedded system design - bus timing, CPU to memory and I/O interfacing
10. Dynamicaly controlled LED display, graphical LCD interfacing
11. Timers, input capture, output compare modul, PWM, driving of power outputs
12. Supervisory devices, watch dog, power supply for embedded system, battery powering
13. Cooperation of microcontrollers in an embedded system
14. Case study
