Description

This module considers the application of programmable microcontrollers and their use in microprocessor based systems. Various approaches to hardware configuration, interfacing and microcontroller architecture are examined, with case studies. There are practical exercises throughout, involving programming a microcontroller, first using assembler and subsequently using the programming language C. Techniques for emulation and simulation are covered, together with tools for fault finding. Structured programming techniques are emphasised because the flexible reusable code that results leads to efficient working and reduced development times. Software packages in use include: Microchip MPLAB, Hi-t…
