The unit offers both theoretical and practical approach for students to learn the basic principle of embedded system, including architecture, designing, and networking. The unit also covers the principle of how the software interacts with hardware in embedded system. Students are presented with the foundation of embedded system design by developing a microcontroller-based embedded system application, Arduino. Arduino is an educational open-source computing platform, which contains several types of microcontrollers in the platforms for physical computing. Student will be given the great opportunity to learn about real-world embedded system environment by installing, designing, and managing several modules in Arduino.
