Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Basic course in Computer Hardware and Architecture
Basic/Good programming skill.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student should be able to:

  • Describe the characteristics of embedded systems, embedded systems design methods and basic developement trade-offs.
  • Describe the embedded systems hardware-software interface.
  • Use important parts of the embedded systems tool-chain.
  • From an abstract description design and implement a small but typical embedded time-ordered application for one emulated target machine.

Course content

Preliminary contents:

  • Embedded Programming: Preprocessing. Assembly and Linking. Basic Compilation Techniques. Coding issues and optimization. Programming Input and Output. Bit-manipulation. Interrupts, Exceptions, and Traps. Memory layout.
  • Embedded Computing: Characteristics of Embedded Computing Applications. The Embedded Systems Design Process.
  • The Embedded Computing Platform: Architectures. Bus Protocols. Memory Devices. I/O Devices. Timers and Counters. Component interfacing.
  • Embedded Application Design: Basic system models. State-machines. Time-ordered applications. Concurrent tasks and communication. Scheduling.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of a series of lectures, lessons, and laboratory
work. The examination consist of a set of theory questions and an
implementation part where the student solve an embedded systems
programming problem.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
