Summary

The course deals with problems and means of real-time systems. It focuses on control elements of real-time systems and ways of programming them. Within the course the students will be acquainted with: • the properties and the way of programming of FPGA circuits through VHDL language • the properties and the way of programming of ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers through C/C++ • and the development of applications under real-time operating systems FreeRTOS and CMSIS-RTOS API (RTX). The course focuses on practical solutions in the programming of simple demonstration tasks.
