  • Introduction. Challenges of Embedded System design, the design flow and design methodology.
  • Microprocessor Instruction sets. Comparison of a general-purpose CPU with a digital signal processing CPU.
  • Microprocessor Interfaces. Mechanisms and infrastructures for communication within embedded systems. Interrupts, bus systems, bus hierarchies.
  • Processes and Operating Systems. Fundamentals of multi-tasking in embedded systems.
  • Multiprocessors. Basic multi-processing architectures and communication schemes. Cache coherence. 
  • Networks and Distributed Systems. Mechanisms and infrastructures for communication between embedded systems. Examples of network protocols.

This course is taught in English.
