ECET 20900 - Introduction to Microcontrollers
Credit Hours: 4.0.
This course is an introduction to microcontroller hardware and software, focusing on embedded control applications. Interconnections of components, peripheral devices, bus timing relationships, structured C-language programming, debugging, input/output techniques, and use of PC based software development tools are studied.
At the conclusion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Demonstrate a working knowledge of the necessary steps and methods used to interface a microcomputer system to devices such as stepper motors and sensors.
- Develop and demonstrate a structured C language program to accomplish a given task using a microcomputer.
- Demonstrate the use of interrupts and other programming techniques related to microcontrollers.
- Complete the design, development, programming, and testing of a microcomputer-based project.
- Demonstrate a working knowledge of microcomputer busses and the flow of data within a microcomputer system.
