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.
