Entry requirements

120 credits including Computer Architecture and Operating Systems. Participation in Real Time Systems and Programming of Embedded Systems. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.

Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • develop embedded software of high quality using high level programming in e.g. C,
  • develop embedded systems based on real time operating systems,
  • develop software on embedded hardware platforms taking limitations such as memory size, processor capacity, and bandwidth into account,
  • develop correct and efficient software using fault detection and other test systems.

Content

Project work in groups covering 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.

Instruction

Project.

Assessment

Written and oral reporting on the project.

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.
