ENGR 015. Fundamentals of Digital and Embedded Systems
This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of digital and embedded systems. Digital topics covered will include Boolean algebra, binary arithmetic, digital representation of data, gates, and truth tables. Students will also learn basic programming skills, and apply those skills to build embedded systems. Embedded topics include the link between hardware and software, analog to digital and digital to analog systems, and an introduction to actuators (LED’s, speakers, servo motors, etc.) and sensors (buttons, accelerometers, microphones, etc.). In the laboratory students will implement a variety of systems with physical inputs and outputs. The course concludes with a self-chosen project.
