This course is oriented hardware and interfaces. It presents in details the different part of an embedded system.
The first part explain the different part of this kind of system, mainly by the help of a small microcontroller, the MSP430 familly.
FPGA hardcore and softcore embedded processors are described and used in laboratories. They are used with and on FPGA (programmable logic).
Conception methodology of some architecture is put in application with practical works in VHDL on FPGA.
Microcontrollers are studied and their used emphasized in the course with the help of laboratories.
Laboratories are associated with main topics.
At the end of semester, students have to be able to design an embedded system based on microcontroller and FPGA.
