ECEN 5833 - Low Power Embedded Design Techniques Course uri icon



  • The course explores through weekly quizzes, assignments, and a course project, low energy hardware design concepts, selecting components to meet reliability goals, radio implementation, power supply design, product design, and system bring up. The programming of the microcontroller or SoC will most likely be 'coding to the metal' to control individual microcontroller peripherals and utilizing them in the most energy efficient ways. Recommended requisites: Students should have knowledge of assembly and C programming, digital logic design, and embedded computer architecture, and have had at least one course in each of these subjects, such as ECEN 5813 or ECEN 5823, students should also have experience using a microcontroller Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and its associated tools including its debugger and register views.
