IIT Jammu’s Course on Introduction to Embedded System Design [Jul 20-Oct 9]: Registrations Open


The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Jammu is organizing a 12 week Online Course on Introduction to Embedded System Design from July 20 to October 9, 2020.

This course teaches embedded system design using a building block approach, which allows one to visualize the requirement of an embedded system and then to design it efficiently. The course will teach embedded system design using a microcontroller, namely Texas Instruments MSP430 low power microcontroller.

  • The course will introduce various interfacing techniques for popular input devices including sensors, output devices, and communication protocols.
  • It will teach power supply design for embedded applications.
  • It will also teach effective embedded programming techniques in C and how to maintain code using GIT.
  • It will have a significant practical component, which will be achieved through an MSP430 microcontroller kit, to be distributed for free, to selected participants.
  1. Introduction to Embedded Systems and Computer Systems Terminology. Modular approach to Embedded System Design using the Six-Box model: Input devices, output devices, embedded computer, communication block, host and storage elements, and power supply.
  2. Microcontroller Based Embedded System Design. Salient Features of Modern Microcontrollers. Elements of Microcontroller Ecosystem and their significance.
  3. Design of Power Supply for Embedded Systems. Linear Regulator Topologies. Switching Power Supply Topologies. Power Supply Design Considerations for Embedded Systems.
  4. Advanced Physical Interfacing: Driving load – high side, low side, and H-bridge. Multiplexing displays including Charlieplexing. Shaft encoder.
  5. Circuit Prototyping techniques. Designing Single Purpose Computers using Finite State Machine with Datapath (FSMD) approach. MSP430 Based Project Design and Implementation. Recap of Course Coverage.
