Embedded Systems – Shape The World: Microcontroller Input/Output
Learn how electronic gadgets are designed, developed, and built as embedded systems that shape the world. This is part one of a two part sequence. Together these are hands–on, learn–by–doing courses that show you how to build solutions to real–world problems using embedded systems. In this course, we take a bottom–up approach to problem solving, building gradually from simple interfacing of switches and LEDs to complex concepts like a microcontroller–based pacemaker, digital lock, and a traffic light controller. We will present both general principles and practical tips for building circuits and programming the microcontroller in the C programming language. You will develop debugging skills using oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, and software instrumentation. Laboratory assignments are first performed in simulation, and then you will build and debug your system on the real microcontroller. At the conclusion of this part 1 you will possess the knowledge to build your own traffic light controller from the ground up. This is the fourth time we have offered this course. Since the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive we do not plan major changes over the previous offerings of the course. We did however break the large class into two smaller classes. There are eight labs in part 1 …

This is a great course for anyone who is interested in getting hands on experience with Embedded Systems. For those who have some prior knowledge, the first few weeks can be a little boring. The selection of course material is very good. With some additional reading, this is a great course for a beginner to get involved in embedded systems.
Great class and a lot of work. We covered many aspects of embedded systems design using the TM4C123G.

I’s very good, the team add developed this formation in acordance with the best practices, is very useful to begining developent in arm devices.
Alex Lako –
An excellent introduction to microcontrollers. The course uses a Texas Intruments LaunchPad microcontroller to teach the concepts. The parts required to complete the course a relatively inexpensive. The instructors make the learning fun and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this course to get you started.

One of the best online courses that I ever participated in.
Staff is awesome, Jonathan Valvano’s and Ramesh Yerraballi’s enthusiasm was so good to see and it inspired me a lot.
Great course. I found it pretty challenging and some of the sections were not new to me. The grading system was really effective, I don’t know of any other embedded course that can actually test the device you are working on.
