Course Description: The course covers the architectures of various PICs and microcontrollers, CPUs, registers, addressing modes, parallel and serial I/O. The course emphasizes working with embedded operating systems, device drivers and system communication. The students will learn to tailor embedded operating systems for specific embedded applications, use simple communication protocols including device drivers to connect the microcontroller to a system and to design embedded systems. Laboratory projects will provide students with hands-on work to reflect real-world applications. Employability skills, such as problem solving teamwork, communication, and critical thinking are integrated into the coursework. 3 hours lecture/2 hours laboratory
Prerequisite(s): Completion of NST 165 and NST 171.
