Develop low-level embedded software using high level programming in e.g. C.
Explain the most important features of real-time operating systems, and their use in embedded software.
Use programming patterns that take into account limitations of embedded hardware platforms, e.g. memory size, processor capacity, and bandwidth.
Discuss basic mechanisms for establishing fault tolerance and recovery .
Explain basic approaches in validating the functionality of embedded software.
The course covers the following areas: development environments for embedded software, resource aware programming, hardware programming, developing multi-threaded software, inter-process communication with shared memory and message passing, programming using real time operating systems, fault detection and testing, and fault tolerance and fault recovery.
Lectures, lessons, assignments, and labs .
The course is examined with exam and assignments, the theory part consists of 3 credits and the practical 2 credits.
