Concentration Requirements

Embedded Controller

Embedded controllers are the relatively small,inexpensive,low power microprocessors found in a vast array of devices ranging from mobile phones to washing machines to automobiles. Students who complete this concentration will have learned how to design, build, and test simple embedded controller systems. The necessary programming and circuitry principles and techniques learned along the way are valuable in their own right.

EEN 1200       Digital Fundamentals
CSC 1610       Computer Science I
EEN 2250       Assembly for Electrical Engineering (or, with advisor approval, CSC 3720 Computer Architecture)
EEN 2270       Embedded Microprocessors*

*EEN 2270 requires knowledge of both analog and digital circuits.The analog circuit requirement is met by PHY 2212. The digital circuit requirement is satisfied by either EEN 1200 (normally required as a pre-requisite but which can be taken as co-requisite with instructor approval) or by permission of the instructor pending completion of assigned background reading on digital circuits.
