DEPARTMENT: ELECTRICAL & COMPUTER ENGINEERING
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Microprocessor architecture and operation: internal state machine, registers, and microcode. Microprocessor systems: direct memory access, interrupts, and interfacing to memory and I/O (including programmable ports). Applications of state machines, ROM-controllers, microprocessors, and microcontrollers. Troubleshooting with an emulator. Students must design, build, and present to the class an approved project that uses a microcontroller. Laboratory exercises included.
