Seminars on Electronics: Embedded Systems

Microcontroller evaluation board

This course on embedded systems is offered, in Spanish, at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Buenos Aires since 2009, under the figure of the Seminars on Electronics (code 66.48) elective for the Electronics Engineering degree. It is delivered by a group of teachers linked to the Embedded Systems Laboratory, who are also responsible for the annual Argentine Symposium on Embedded Systems (SASE).

Learning Outcomes

At the completion of this course, the students will have demonstrated the ability to:

  • Describe current technology used to implement embedded systems (ES). In particular, 32-bit microcontrollers.
  • Apply best practices from Software Engineering, that are relevant to ES design for organizing the life cycle of a project and improving teamwork efficiency.
  • Explain the role of modeling in ES development, and build models employing graphical languages that are usually used in the practice.
  • Develop embedded applications in C language using, when justified, a real-time operating system (RTOS), and applying specific programming techniques that improve efficiency, reliability and reusability, under conditions that are frequently found in the profession.
  • Analyze and synthesize basic support and interface circuits.
  • Explain basic techniques for the implementation of signal processing algorithms on ES, and how they address these platforms' limitations.
  • Write documents that support an engineering project.
  • Further their learning, through other courses offered at FIUBA, or by means of their own self-learning skills.
