Advanced Microprocessor Design

ENG EC 757

This project course provides a varied and practical view of the development cycle of an embedded system design. Topics include hardware and software design methodologies, use of CAD and simulation tools, assemblers, compilers, debuggers, and programmers. Microprocessor architectures from Motorola, Intel, TI, and ARM will be discussed and evaluated. Computer interfaces such as I2C, CAN, USB, PCI, Ethernet, and Bluetooth will be discussed in detail. Students will gain a clear understanding of the design cycle from project definition and proposal to PCB layout and manufacturing. A course design project is required.
