120 credits including Computer Architecture and Operating Systems. Real Time Systems. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
- Responsible department: Department of Information Technology
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- 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.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
