COE 718

Embedded Systems Design

This course will cover the basics of embedded system organization, system on programmable-chip technologies and real-time systems. It provides the advance knowledge required for embedded computer design and development as well as real-time operating systems. Students are introduced to software development concepts applicable to real-time and embedded systems. Particularly ARM Cortex M3 will be studied as a representative embedded processor and embedded software development is carried out for ARM Cortex CPUs. The students will be able to grasp the main principles of embedded system design and understand the concept of hardware-software codesign, system on programmable chip (SoPC), real-time operating systems and scheduling techniques. Embedded system co-specification and partitioning is also introduced in the course. SystemC or other languages (e.g. UML, C, etc.) can be employed to present a unified view of the embedded systems. SystemC is introduced as a representative Co-specification language. Embedded hardware-software design and development tools (such as Altera Quartus II and SOPC builder) will be introduced.
