Introduction to microprocessors and embedded systems

Summary:

The goals of this course are to understand the main principles of a microprocessor thanks to an
embedded system. It’s both bas
ed on basic courses about microprocessor and laboratory work on a
real embedded system.

Topics (key words):

Basic microprocessor principles: fetch, decode and execute cycle + pipeline.

Numbers systems, signed and unsigned integers, addition, subtraction a
nd flags.

Machine code, assembly language, assembler.

Instruction set: taking decision, moving data…

From C to assembly language: compiler.

Exception handling and interrupts.

Microcontroller and embedded systems.

Course and laboratory

:

This is a lab
-
orie
nted course in which classroom topics are explored through in
-
depth experiments in
laboratory projects.

First, the students understand what a microprocessor is thanks to the LMC model (Little Man
Computer). Then, step by step, all they must know about a mi
croprocessor is described in order to
program in assembly language and C, a Cortex M3 based microcontroller (ARM). First students create
a simple interface with switches and LEDs in order to buid a memory game. Then they have to link a
sensitive touch scr
een to the microcontroller on their system. Courses and laboratory works are mixed.
At the beginning, there are mostly courses then at the end mostly laboratory sessions.

Prerequisite

Students are supposed to have a knowledge about
circuit analysis with sinusoidal signals and
some ideas about Fourier series representation of periodical signals. They must of course know
how to calculate basic integrals (mainly exponential functions and rectangular window) and finite
and infinite geome
trical series.

Course description

of tutorials

(tutorial and lecture will be intertwined, as the group will be small enough to do it in the same
place).
