This course introduces the use of microcontrollers in electronic circuits and covers concepts of computer architecture such as CPUs, memory, digital input/output, interrupts, and A/D conversion. The student uses microcontrollers with applications such as PWM motor control, OLED displays, analog sensors, pulse counting, switch, and keypad inputs and advances their ability to program embedded electronic devices using state machines and timing considerations.
