Course objectives
Embedded systems run the computing devices hidden inside a vast array of everyday products and appliances such as cell phones, toys, handheld PDAs, cameras, and microwave ovens. The goal of this course is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the technologies behind the embedded systems design. The students develop an appreciation of the existing capabilities and limitations of various steps in overall design methodology -
exploration, partitioning,
validation/verification of embedded systems.
  • Overview of embedded systems.
  • Design methodologies.
  • Modeling and simulation of embedded systems.
  • Verification and validation.
  • Design re-use.
  • Software design and optimized architecture selection.
  • Real-time aspects of embedded systems development.
  • Component-based design.

Assessment methods
Final examination consist from 2 parts:
1) defence of the project - implementation of the design from laboratory lessons and discussion about protocol;
2) oral exam - teoretical problems from list of the passed subjects.
