Course objectives
Main aim of this course is understand and master theoretical knowledge and practical virtuosity necessary for description and for application of the microcontroller and microcomputer.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- design single-chip microcomputer applications;
- work with the C language in a single-chip microcomputer environment;
- program single-chip microcomputer applications;
- work with peripherals of microcomputers (PWM, timer, ADC...).
  • - Programming of the microcontrollers:
  •  - structure of the programming language;
  •  - control structures (Boolean expressions, conditions, cycles);
  •  - bit operations and bit array;
  •  - terminal input/output;
  •  - control of memories;
  •  - pointers;
  •  - onedimension and multidimensional array;
  •  - structures, unions, enumeration types;
  • - Program control of the peripheral units;
  •  - serial ports;
  •  - LED, bargraph, switches, buttons, shift registers;
  •  - text and graphical displays;
  •  - interrupt systems;
  •  - counters and timers, PWM;
  •  - A/D and D/A converters;
  •  - control of the RAM, ROM and FLASH memories;
  • - Practical advices;

Teaching methods
Lectures and individual project that correspond to intended aims of tuition.
Assessment methods
During the semester you will be given a individual project whose results will be part of the final evaluation.Final examination consists of 3 parts:
1) defense of the project - implementation of the design from laboratory lessons and discussion about protocol
2) solving of the simple task
3) oral exam - theoretical tools for design of the digital circuits.
