An embedded system is a microprocessor-based computer hardware system with software designed to perform a dedicated function, either as an independent system or as a part of an extensive network. At the core is an integrated circuit designed to carry out computation for real-time operations.

Course Curriculum

Get to know in detail about all the key concepts and techniques used to design and learn from basic to advanced topics.

In the first section, we will introduce you to Embedded Systems and the industries it is a core part of.

Then we will give you a comprehensive analysis of the scope and job opportunities in this field.

Intel designed the 8051 microcontrollers in 1981. Its simplified architecture and instruction set are its significant advantages. The 8051 Architecture form a vital part of the embedded systems. In this module, you will be introduced to the 8051 Architecture from the basic to an advanced level.
A Special Function Register is a register within a microprocessor that controls or monitors the various functions. Learn about SFRs in-depth in this section.
This section deals with address allocation and the five different types of addressing modes. Also, learn about the various types of control transfer instruction in assembly language, including conditional or unconditional jumps and call instructions.
Construction of an assembly level circuit through the use of basic Assembly level language.
In this section, you will learn about Program organization and microcontroller memory. LED and Switch interfacing will also be an essential part of this concept.
The LCD is an inevitable part of almost all embedded projects. Learn about how to interface a separate LCD with an 8051 system Interfacing keypad matrix with 8051 in this section.

A timer in an embedded system is a device that counts down from a specified time interval and is used to generate a time delay.

A counter is a device that stores (and sometimes displays) the number of times a particular event or process occurred concerning a clock signal.

Learn about the basics and how to implement them using a register-type circuit in this section.

Learn about the UART protocol that aids in the asynchronous transmission of serial data. It is an anomalous way to send serial data in a quick manner.
Learn about Interrupts and Polls that manage the processes of an embedded system on a priority base. The different types of Interrupts are an essential part of understanding the working of interrupts. The difference between Interrupt and Polling will also be discussed at length under this topic.
Learn about various protocols or system procedures that relay communication from source to destination and their specific programming commands to run operation
Learn about the ARM or Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture in this section. AMBA or ARM is an open-standard, on-chip interconnect specification for connecting and managing functional blocks in system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs.

Learn about the I/O ports of different Architectures in embedded systems and learn how to use them via programming.

Learn about port addressability.
