OVERVIEW
  This course extends studentsí understanding of computer systems and computer interfacing with external devices. Students will assemble computer systems by installing and configuring appropriate hardware and software, and will learn more about fundamental concepts of electronics, robotics, programming, and networks. Students will examine related environmental and societal issues, and will explore postsecondary pathways leading to careers in computer technology.
EMPHASIS
  This course focuses on Optimization of AVR microcontrollers  
RESOURCES  
  • Collection of handouts
  • Introduction to Embedded Systems Using ANSI C and the Arduino Development Environment
  • multiple internet resources
STRATEGIES   The student is largely responsible for directing his own learning in the context of efficiency and productivity. Whereas the fundamental architecture of AVR microcontrollers, embedded system design, and the ANSI C language are all introduced in class, the assessment and evaluation of student performance will be based almost exclusively on the design and implementation of time-sensitive projects of his own choosing. Upon completion of this course, the student will demonstrate the ability to identify practical problems and projects whose solutions demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge.
