ELEC60013 Embedded Systems
Lecturer(s): Dr Edward Stott
The aim of this module is to teach you the theory and practice of computing in the world of ubiquitous smart devices.
Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:
1. Explain the particular requirements of computer systems that interact directly with the physical world.
2. Analyse the constraints imposed by time-critical applications
3. Set up low-level communication between software, hardware devices and the wider world
4. Use interrupts and threading to guarantee that time constraints are met
5. Write complex, low-level software that is reliable
6. Experience of using a number of hardware platforms and development toolchains
System interfacing using low-level communication; Lightweight internet communication with MQTT; Real time constraint analysis; Interrupts and multi-threading.
