EE319K Introduction to Embedded Systems   Syllabus Spring 2014   Spring 2014 Lab manual   Email all professors and TAs    Fall 2012 Design Competition   Spring 2013 Design Competition
Undergraduate class: EE319K students discover how the computer interacts with its environment. Students have hands-on experiences of how an embedded system could be used to solve EE problems. The analog to digital converter (ADC) and digital to analog converter (DAC) are the chosen mechanism to bridge the CE and EE worlds. EE concepts include Ohms Law, LED voltage/current, resistance measurement, and stepper motor control. CE concepts include I/O device drivers, debugging, stacks, FIFO queues, local variables and interrupts. The hardware construction is performed on a breadboard and debugged using a multimeter. Software is developed in assembly and in C for a ARM Cortex-M TM4C123 microcontroller. New Prerequisites: EE306 or BME303 with a grade of at least C-.
