The course is taught in English. This course is part of the Master Degree in Computer Engineering, focused on Embedded Systems, and it is eligible course for the Master Degree in Mechatronic Engineering. The course aims at deepening the concepts acquired during the Operating Systems course, describing the peculiarities of embedded systems, of the dedicated development tools, and outlining the peculiarities of some operating systems for embedded systems that are particularly relevant (process scheduler, OSEK/VDX, AUTOSAR, Linux). The course will also deepen the concepts of real-time embedded systems, and the issues of communications with ad-hoc hardware components.

Modalitą di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
Exam: Written test; Group project;
Exam Written exam lasting 60 minutes, closed books, composed of questions on the exam content, and numerical exercises to apply the theory presented in class. The maximum score for this part is 33. Assignment Students will be asked to deliver a group assignment (2 persons per group) to be developed during the semester, describing the activities done in lab. The maximum score for this part is 33. The final grade is obtained using the following weights: 70% for the written exam, 30% for the assignment. In case the final grade is 33/30, 30L will be recorded.
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilitą o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unitą Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione pił idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

Assignment Students will be asked to deliver a group assignment (2 persons per group) to be developed during the semester, consisting of developing a small project on the topics of the class. Upon delivery of the individual assignment, students can be asked to take an oral exam to illustrate the content of the assignment. The maximum score for this part is 33. The final grade is obtained using the following weights: 60% for the written exam, 40% for the assignment. In case the final grade is 33/30, 30L will be recorded.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
