Semestr: Summer

Range: 2+2s


Credits: 4

Programme type: Undefined

Study form:

Course language:


The course is oriented on technologies exploited in embedded microcomputer applications. Topics covered are: modifications of standard programming languages, principles and implementation approaches applied in real-time kernels, automaton models in real-time program design, fuzzy control and real-time data filtering. Attention is given to debugging and optimization of embedded applications. Practice is oriented on developing abilities in design and implementation of applications based on single-chip microcomputers.
