The aims of this course are to introduce students the basic concepts and major components of microprocessors and microcontrollers and to provide students with knowledge and skills for solving problems with microprocessors /microcontrollers.
Before commencing this course, students should:
These are expected to have been taught in COMP1021 or COMP1091 or COMP1721 or COMP1921 or COMP1927
After completing this course, students will:

In this course a variety of teaching strategies will be used.
You are expected to spend at least one hour on the course for every hour you spend in class (i.e., at least 5 hours per week). You should practice programming as much as possible.
Creativity in subjects such as this will only be possible when you are an expert. It is no different from being a pianist, artist, or a mathematician.
You should understand all introduced concepts clearly. If not, you are encouraged to stop and ask.
This course teaches the theory and skills needed to design and implement systems utilising microprocessor systems. Passing this course involves keeping up with the theory and putting in the time to complete the lab exercises. The lab work brings the theory alive and clarifies deeper issues. Without the theory, the lab work is difficult to master. Each therefore complements the other. Both require time. If you allocate sufficient time each week, you won't have any problems passing, and it can be a very rewarding experience. It is our belief that certain activities make a world of difference to your learning experience at University. You should:

To pass this course, you MUST get at least 50% of the full marks in the labs, return the lab kits, and achieve at least 40/100 in the final exam and 50/100 in the final result. Your final result is calculated based on:
The final exam is a closed book, written exam, and lasts 2 hours.
Each week there are two lectures. The following topics will be covered:
This course is evaluated each session using the myExperience system.
