ECE 362 Microprocessor System Design and Interfacing Spring 2012 - 1 - COURSE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES Course Description: An introduction to control-oriented microprocessor (“microcontroller”) architecture, software, interfacing, and peripherals, with an emphasis on basic computer engineering concepts. This is not a course about “personal” or general-purpose computers, but rather about embedded microcontrollers that serve as the basic building block of a wide variety of “intelligent” products. Purpose of Course: ECE 362 provides an introduction to microprocessors, assembly language programming techniques, interface hardware design, common on-chip peripheral devices used in microcontroller-based systems, and general computer engineering concepts. As such, this course relies heavily on background obtained in the required prerequisite courses (listed below). Since it is geared toward meeting core ECE curriculum requirements, this course is not recommended for students having little or no engineering or electronics background. Required Background: Required prerequisites are ECE 270 and CS 159 (or equivalent). Further, it is highly recommended that these courses be taken recently . Course Web Site URL: https://engineering.purdue.edu/ece362 Course E-mail Address: [email protected] Materials/References You Will Need: 1. Motorola 9S12C32 Microcontroller Kit (available on-line from Technological Arts) 2. “iClicker” Student Response Unit (available at local bookstores) Lecture Notes: Both fully annotated and “skeleton” versions of the class lecture notes (referred to as a Lecture Workbook ) are posted on the course web site. Each student will be responsible for printing his/her own copy of these materials and bringing them to class. Computer Account: If you don’t already have one, you must obtain a “coordinated” ITaP/ECN computer account to use the machines in lab. Requests can be sent to [email protected] . Further, you must establish a “ [email protected] ” e-mail alias so that course information can be automatically sent to you. Consultation Outside of Class: Scheduled office hours for all course staff members will be posted on the course web site. You are encouraged to make good use of all the “live” office hours available for this course – please do not E-mail long/detailed questions to the course staff about the lecture/lab material, as this type of communication tends to be very inefficient. Class Number: The identifier you will use on all materials turned in for this course, referred to as your class number , will be constructed by concatenating the last four digits of your student identification number with the first character of your last name . For example, if your PUID number is “01234-56789” and your last name is “Jones”, your class number would be “6789-J”. Class Attendance:
