ECET 4720 Distributed Microcontrollers and PCs

Prerequisites: ECET 3220, ECET 4710


A study of networked PIC microcontrollers connected to a host PC or several networked PCs. Two popular versions of various microcontroller architectures will be discussed. Software will emphasize both assembly language programming and ANSI C programming. Hardware will emphasize the bus interconnections between the devices such as RS232/RS485, I2C, CAN, SPI, etc. Example Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) for microcontrollers is introduced as well. Development of a capstone project, through the design of a printed circuit board is also included.
