Teaching

courses taught

  • ECEN 5623 - Real-Time Embedded Systems
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Design and build a microprocessor-based embedded system application requiring integration of sensor/actuator devices, a real-time operating system and application firmware and software. Real-time rate monotonic theory and embedded architecture are covered. Prioritized for EEEN graduate students with ESE (Embedded Systems Engineering) sub-plan.
  • ECEN 5803 - Mastering Embedded Systems Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Acquire an understanding of embedded systems architectures for the purpose of creating prototypes or products for a variety of applications. The salient issues in the decision making process will be examines, including trade-offs between hardware and software implementations, processor and operating system selection and IP creation or acquisition. Projects will involve the latest software development and tools and hardware platforms.
  • ECEN 5863 - Programmable Logic Embedded System Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Learn to design programmable systems on a chip for the purpose of creating prototypes or products for a variety of applications. Explore complexities, capabilities and trends of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) and Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLD). Implement synchronization and timing closure in these devices. Projects will involve the latest software and FPGA development tools and hardware platforms.
