A microcontroller is an integrated system containing a minimum of a microprocessor, dynamic and non-volatile memory, and a set of peripherals consistent with all design requirements. This unit allows learners develop C based programs on a microcontroller based system. Additionally, through practical hands-on experiments learners will have the opportunity to develop and debug software programs for the control of various digital and analogue input, output devices. Additionally, will be exposed to use embedded IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to write the embedded code using a high-level language compilers and the use of simulation tools to test and debug small-scaled embedded systems which interface and use I/O devices such as LEDs and LCD displays, switches, keypads. Learners will be guided through a broad range of case studies in order to control various embedded I/O hardware and to incorporate a range of interesting transducers. Attention will also be given to the basic concepts on interrupt programming.
Develop software and hardware for a specific microcontroller application.
