Description
Meets with ME EN 6240. The goal of this course is to give students an experience in integrating electromechanical systems by utilizing a commodity microcontroller. Students will review some basic electronics, and learn to interface a PIC microcontroller with a broad variety of peripheral devices including motor drivers, LCDs, shift registers, DAC and encoder chips among others. The course will also emphasize some basics of serial communication, culminating with a wireless serial communication based laboratory and project. Students will leave the course with a broad set of skills necessary to build custom embedded systems through the use of a microcontroller and off-the-shelf components.
