Course Descriptions

CSC 202 - Programming Embedded Microcontrollers in C and Assembly

4 Credits

The student will learn how to program, interface and troubleshoot a modern embedded processor such as the Motorola 68HC12 in both C and Assembly Language. Microcontroller architecture will be stressed. Topics include Synchronous and Asynchronous Input/Output, Analog to Digital Conversion, Pulse Width Modulation, Timer/Counters, Interrupts and Parallel Port Programming. Laboratory work will focus on program development, implementation and debugging techniques. Several programming projects will be assigned to be completed outside of class and in lab. A final project and student presentation are required. Three class hours, two laboratory hours.

Prerequisite:MTH 165 with a C or better and CIS 200 or CPT 101 or CSC 101 or ENR 161 or ENR 157 with a C or better.
