Course objective : Microprocessors are used in places where microprocessors are high power demanding expensive and too high power for the application. In this course the students are thought the principles of microprocessor interdisciplinary applications. Some of the course topics are implemented in a project done by the student (groups) within a limited time frame. A popular microcontroller will be used for class work implementations.
Learning outcomes : A student who completes the course successfully will solves the encountered analog or digital problem in the microcontroller platform in hardware and software. Finds solutions to the problems within a group while working on a projec
