ECE 263: Embedded System Design
Prerequisite: ECE 160 & ECE 260; For CPE/ELE majors only
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
A study of embedded system design useful to electrical and computer engineers, including assembly language programming, program debugging, and system design. Students learn the fundamentals of microprocessor technology including instruction set architectures, memory hierarchy design, and input/output functions. Practical applications apply this technology toward the design of systems involving data collection, automatic control, and operator interfaces. Emphasis is placed on hands-on program development using a microcontroller.
