The course offers an overview of microprocessor based systems with special attention to low level assembly programming in parallel and non-parallel architectures.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Embedded systems are, among all, tightly combining architecture and special purpose software designs. This implies that both hardware and software projects are not only mutually influencing one the other, but also that an embedded system designer must count on a deep knowledge and expertise of low level programming. The main goal of this course is to provide the Students with these capabilities, both from theoretical and practical points of view.
