CSE 442: Embedded Systems

Offered Under: B.Sc. in Computer Science & Engineering (CSE)
Description

Provides a detailed overview of the important topics in the field. Typical examples of embedded systems; real time and safety critical issues; constraint driven design; systems integration; hardware-software partitioning and time-to-market considerations will be addressed. The subject will examine programmable devices, micro-controllers, application specific standard processors: importance of interrupts; re-configurable logic; system-on-a-chip; finite state machines; dataflow architectures; and distributed embedded systems. Software for embedded systems, including: programming languages and software architectures; interrupt servicing; multi-tasking; task communications and scheduling; verification: hardware-software co-simulation; and real-time operating systems will be introduced.
