Embedded Systems

To many people, embedded systems are mysterious because the way they function is often hidden from our eyes. The reality is that embedded systems are all around us, from cars to cameras, cell phones to clothing. These devices often contain electronics and a hidden processor. The objective, in this course, is to demystify the world of embedded systems through theoretical and hands-on exercises that begin to examine the components that comprise these fascinating systems. Once you understand how a software running inside a microcontroller interfaces with sensor and actuator circuitry, you can use this knowledge to construct embedded electronic systems of your own.
