Credits 4
Semesters Winter
Completion Assessment + Examination
Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 2P+2L
This subject is focused on the embedded system design, especially using ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers. The students need to solve two simple and two complex projects of embedded system design using microcontroller. These projects include both circuit and program realization.
Study targets
To teach basics embedded system design, embedded programming in assembler and C
