Course Preamble

In today's world, embedded systems are all over, homes, offices, cars, factories, hospitals and consumer electronics. The inherent value of embedded systems lies in its pervasiveness. They are literally embedded in all electronic products, from consumer electronics to office automation, automotive, medical devices and communications. They make the products smart, connected and are responsible for differentiating the products in the market.

Embedded systems are normally built around Microcontrollers and ARM Processor based SOCs. This Embedded System Design course focuses on the architecture and programming of embedded processors, development of applications using Embedded/Real-Time Operating Systems and porting the applications on ARM. An overview of Internet of Things (IoT) and Embedded Product Design is included in the course. As part of seven weeks project work, a proof-of-concept prototype design of an embedded system is also included in the course to make the participants industry ready.

Course Objective

The objective of the course is to provide understanding of the techniques essential to the design and implementation of embedded systems using suitable 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 

  • Proficiency required to design any embedded system (H/w or S/w or both) based on different families and architectures of Embedded System tools such as Microcontrollers, ARM Processors, Open Source Hardware etc.
  • Expertise in developing applications using Embedded OS/RTOS and porting it on ARM Platform.

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
