The majority of embedded systems use one or more microprocessors for control and data processing, which is assisted by some generic or specialized hardware. A successful computer engineer needs to be well versed in both software and hardware aspects to master the design and implementation of such complex embedded systems. This course ( EECE 4534 ) will introduce you to practical microprocessor-based system design issues, such as system specification, understanding hardware capabilities (e.g. embedded processor organization; addressing modes; memory hierarchy; parallel and serial bus protocols), hardware/software co-design aspects, mastering hardware/software interfaces and the design of device drivers. The course is tightly integrated with the mandatory laboratory ( EECE 4535 ) in which you have the opportunity to practically realize the theoretic aspects of the lecture. The lab has two parts. The first portion gradually introduces you to embedded systems through a set of ready made exercises (e.g. light dimmer, controlling a servo motor, voice recorder, real-time voice
