Embedded processors can be broken into two broad categories. Ordinary microprocessors (μP) use separate integrated circuits for memory and peripherals. Microcontrollers (μC) have on-chip peripherals,
thus reducing power consumption, size and cost.
Numerous microcontrollers have been developed for embedded systems use. General-purpose microprocessors are also used in embedded systems, but generally require more support circuitry than microcontrollers.
This course takes you through the world of todays most important breed of processors- ARM Processors, along with their development, features, real world interfacing and the embedded communication systems.
Third Year, Semester II
|Phase I: In Semester Exam
|Phase II: End Semester Exam
- To understand need and application of ARM Microprocessors in embedded system.
- To study the architecture of ARM series microprocessor
- To understand architecture and features of typical ARM7& ARM CORTEX-M3 Microcontroller.
- To learn interfacing of real world input and output devices
- To learn embedded communication systems.
After successfully completing the course students will be able to:
- Describe the ARM microprocessor architectures and its feature.
- Interface the advanced peripherals to ARM based microcontroller
- Design embedded system with available resources.
