Microprocessor System Design

Description

This course is an introduction to the basic hardware and software elements in the design of modern microcontroller-based systems.  The emphasis is on designing system-level solutions to engineering problems using both hardware and sofware components.  The accompanying
laboratory provides hands-on experience on designing microcontroller-based solutions for various applications.
Since the lecture and laboratory are closely related, enrollment in both is mandatory.

Prerequisites

  1. CMPE 12/L
  2. CMPE 100/L
  3. EE 101/L
  4. CMPE 13/L

Knowledge of C programming is required for the lab exercises.

Evaluation Criteria

     Homeworks: 10 percent
     Midterm: 15 percent
     Final: 15 percent
     Lab assignments:  30 percent
     Lab project: 20 percent

     Class participation: 10 percent

Lab

You must attend one lab section every week. You will be assigned 5 to 6 lab exercises over the quarter. You will carry out the exercises individually, and must prepare and submit the reports. Exercises will be posted one week in advance.

Note that CMPE 121 and 121L are part of the same course.  You will receive the same overall grade for both.

Lab Project

A lab project will be assigned after you have completed all the lab exercises. The projects must be done individually.

Class Forum

Please use the Forum to  ask questions related to the course, instead of sending e-mail.  This will enable us to respond to your questions in a timely manner.  

Academic Integrity

All work submitted, including homework solutions, must be your own. Any unauthorized collaboration will be treated as a violation of academic integrity and handled according to University policies (see Student Guide for Academic Integrity for details).
