Branch - Applicable across all engineering branches
The Embedded System Design using PIC Microcontrollers course introduces students to the hardware design of microcontroller circuits, along with firmware design or software used for programming microcontrollers. The programming of peripherals such as analog-to-digital converters, input-output ports, communication interfaces such as Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART), Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) will be covered in this course. Interrupt programming and timer-based event capture, compare and pulse width modulation will also be presented in this course with practical examples. The students will also be introduced to the family of 8-bit controllers.
According to a survey, the embedded systems industry will reach $360 billion by the end of 2020. Jobs in the embedded industry are expected to reach 12 lakhs by 2020.
The objective of the course is to familiarise students with the ability to identify 8-bit microcontroller usage for products in embedded domain, sketch schematics of hardware interfaces using PIC microcontrollers, write modular code in assembly and C language, and program controller peripherals for various applications.
Hands-on will be conducted using a physical kit-based setup using PICkit3 debugger under MikroC IDE. TCS iON will supply the kits, depending on the number of registrations per institution. The kits will be shared among 5 students from each institution on a time-sharing mode. The kits once received by the institution have to be tested as defect free within 2 working days of delivery and will become the responsibility of the institution. The institution will be responsible for maintaining and managing the kits, its usage and bear any costs involved. The procurement process and the cost for any additional kits or peripherals required will have to be handled/borne by the institution. The same kits will be reused for summative assessments.+ Read More - Read Less
