Introduction to embedded systems
- Voltage controlled transistor. Operation in digital devices. Basic logic gates.
- Combinational logic design. Truth tables, Boolean algebra, gate network.
- Binariary arithmetic. Two’s-complement representation, addition/subtraction, overflow, multiplication and shifts.
- Operation of RISC-type processor (data path). Machine instruction, its fetch and execution. Instruction and data memory, registers, ALU.
- Subroutines and functions. Stack and activation record. Pass of parameters.
- Hardware-based (high-level) programming applying peripherals. Time control. Code verification (low-level).
- CMOS technology.
- Hierarchical design (component level design).
- Dynamic/static and volatile/non-volatile memory.
- High-level code optimizing.
- Student can design a combinational gate network from a description/specification.
- Knows simple arithmetic operations with binary numbers and can identify the corresponding digital components.
- Can explain the functionality and limitations of basic computer arithmetic.
- Can explain how the CPU and memory operate together to execute a program.
- Can implement and test simple (high level) hardware-based programs utilizing software development and debugger tools.
The studies are carried out in Moodle and the schedule of the lectures is published before the start of the course.
