Introduction to Embedded and Real Time systems

מק"ט: #4828 | משך קורס: 40 שעות אק'

A Real Time system is any information processing system which has to respond to externally generated input stimuli within a finite and specified period. The computer is a component in a larger engineering system – Embedded Computer System.
This course introduces the development process for such systems, the basic problems and solutions and special considerations involved.

Key topics:

  •  Basic Principles in Real Time systems
  •  Basic Principles in Embedded systems
  •  Developing without Operating system
  •  Hardware and software design and development
