Welcome to the only embedded system course you need to kick-start Embedded programming skill.

Embedded System programming is a multi-disciplinary skill and built upon solid foundation of programming and knowledge of hardware – microcontroller. The course helps you build sound understanding of C & Assembly programming. It discusses the architecture of the ATMega328 microcontroller and how software and hardware interact.

The course is taught ground up. The embedded programs are developed from the scratch and does not use libraries bundled with the C compiler or pre-built third-party libraries. Every functionality needed for the project will be implemented afresh.

You will rig-up the development board using the basic electronic components like capacitors, resistors, LEDs, microcontroller etc. And interface the development board with PC through USB-serial adaptor and in-circuit programmer. You shall setup the development environment on PC, configure the microcontroller and flash the bootloader.

You will learn memory management by C compiler, microcontroller architecture, instruction execution, interrupt handling and cross-language programming. You shall implement programs using C and assembly programming languages and implement pre-main functionalities to bring-up the development board. These topics not only introduce you to the programming but also prepare you to deal with the ecosystem of programming an embedded system.

Key Highlights

  • The embedded system course is based on open source tools and hardware
  • Rig-up your own circuit on breadboard, design and implement programs on it
  • No 3rd party software component used – all the libraries, ISR, IVT are developed from scratch
  • Based on ATmega328/P Microcontroller which is simple to understand & readily available

Teaching Methodology

  • Designed for the success
  • Complex concepts are explained in simple yet interesting manner
  • Balanced – explanation of theoretical concepts and programming exercise
  • Working of the circuit and program logic is explained step-by-step
  • Projects, handouts, source code, quizzes and references
  • Fun & Exciting

What you’ll learn

  • Micro-controller architecture & it’s working
  • Instruction execution, pipelining, stack pointer & interrupts
  • C, AVR assembly programming & implement mixed language projects
  • Arguments and return values passing from a function to another, how memory & CPU registers are allocated during program execution
  • How hardware manages program stack and management of local & global variables
  • Interrupts, interrupt vector table (IVT) and interrupt service routine (ISR), IVT & ISR programming
  • Build environment setup, GNU tools & utilities & build automation using GNU Make
  • Setup in-circuit programmer and USB-Serial adapter, flash & configure ATmega328 micro-controller
