ECE 362 Microprocessor System Design and Interfacing Spring 2012 - 1- Embedded System Design Mini-Project Introduction: Design is an extremely important part of the curriculum – virtually every employer of engineering graduates is interested in the nature and extent of design projects completed by their potential employees. In upper division lab courses such as ECE 362, it is therefore essential that students have the opportunity to complete open-ended, design-oriented exercises. This “Mini- Project” represents our effort to provide such an opportunity. From a pedagogical point of view, this project is based on the premise: “The best way to learn about a topic is to write your own question and then proceed to answer it.” In other words, the process of formulating questions and exploring alternate solutions can help elucidate difficult concepts. To provide as much flexibility as possible concerning potential topics you may wish to explore, a wide range of Mini-Projects may be completed. Mini-Project Functional Requirements: The basic requirement is to design your own embedded system that makes meaningful (and hopefully creative ) use of the 9S12C32 microcontroller resources - in particular, the on-chip peripherals, of which at least four covered in Module 3 (ATD, SCI, SPI, TIM, PWM) should be effectively utilized. Also, your project must operate in a “turn-key” fashion, i.e., your code should be stored in the on-chip flash memory and start up directly out of reset (or automatically when powered up). Finally, the project should be “stand-alone” (self-contained) – any interface hardware required should be “packaged” appropriately. All components used must be supplied by your team. Mini-Project Report Requirements: The “core” of your written report (Sections 1-6, listed below) should be approximately 6 pages in length and printed in point size 12 with vertical spacing 18 (space-and-a-half). Your report should be organized as listed below (a Word skeleton file is provided on the course web site for
