Course Preamble

To better compete in the global market, successful companies are finding that investments in hardware and software are no longer enough. Human elements with specialized engineering and design skills have become the essential part of the equation. 

Embedded systems are ubiquitous. We find them everywhere- at our homes, offices, in shopping malls, in hospitals, in cars, in air craft and so on. They monitor and control everything from spacecraft to robots, microwave ovens, automobiles, consumer electronics and much more. They control virtually everything that is electronic in our lives.

Embedded systems are normally built around Microcontrollers, FPGAs and SOCs. This Embedded System Design course focuses on the architecture and programming of embedded devices such as Microcontrollers and FPGAs and also on embedded and Real-Time Operating Systems.

Course Objective

The objective of the course is to provide understanding of the techniques essential to the design and implementation of embedded systems using appropriate hardware and software tools. This course offers a range of topics of immediate relevance to industry and makes the participants exactly suitable for Embedded Industry.

Course Outcome

On completion of the Course, the Participants shall get 

  •     Exposure with different families and architectures of Embedded System tools such as ARM Microcontrollers, FPGAs etc.
  •     Expertise required to design any embedded system (H/w or S/w or both) based on any of the above devices.
  •     Expertise in Embedded Software particularly in real-time programming with industry standard RTOS.

Course Structure

The ED500 course contains six modules. After completing the first five modules, the students have to do a seven weeks project using any of the topics studied to get the PG Diploma certificate
