Engineering and computing professionals work daily with digital technology. An understanding of digital logic and microprocessors forms a critical basis for further studies and employment in many areas of engineering and computing. Through understanding the design and operation of basic microcontroller systems, students become capable of specifying, designing, programming and testing simple systems, which are critical skills in many areas of engineering.
Using the Arduino Uno as a base, this course aims to develop a fundamental understanding of the operation of the digital computer. It includes digital logic fundamentals; number systems; design and programming of microcontroller systems; analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion; input/output methods; general interface techniques and an introduction to PLCs with practical examples.
