  • Overview

    This course details how embedded controllers can be used to solve a number of real-world engineering problems. The main emphasis is on 8-bit microprocessors, logic systems to support them and techniques to interface them with the physical world. Specific topics include microcontrollers, sensors, actuators, signal conditioning, filters, analogue to digital conversion, systems analysis and introductory control. Practical experience is gained through the use of programming a microcontroller in a high level language and interfacing it to real-world systems.
