Course Objectives The purpose of this course is to teach the students, the basic architectural features and operational principles of 8 bit and 32 bit microcontrollers and the design of microcontroller based electronic and control systems using circuit simulators which are used in commercial and scientific design processes. Projects will be assigned to the students and the experiments to design and implement electronic and control circuits such as traffic light control, voltage regulator, step motor control and owen temperature control which are generally used in industrial applications will be covered.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will be able to describe basic architectural features and operational principles of a 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers
  • will be able to program I/O ports, timers, counters, pwm generators, interrupts, special function registers,
  • will be able to provide serial and I2C communication with other microcontrollers and host computer,
  • will be able to implement analog to digital conversion,
  • will be able to program microcontrollers using C programming language,
  • will be able to establish communication between a microcontroller and industrial devices,
  • will be able to simulate of microcontroller based electronic circuits using a circuit simulator,
