Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The student can define requirements on microcomputer control system after absolving of course. He can explain detailed function of particular parts of microcomputer control system and apply acquired knowledge at practical design of microcomputer control system. Acquired knowledge created part of basic knowledge of electrical engineer, mainly if he's centered on applications in industry electronics area.

Teaching methods


Subject deals with basic knowledge of microprocessor technics. In the subject there is very important to know electronics, analog and digital technics.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Verification of study: Checking test TEST No.1, TEST No.2 (see exercise) Conditions for credit: Obligatory participation in laboratory exercises. In general 4 laboratory exercises are assessed max. 5 points, i. e. max. 20 points from laboratory exercises. Obligatory finishing of 2 tests in regular term. Test is assessed max. 10 points, i. e. max. 20 points from tests. At repetition test is assessed only 80% achieved points. Student can obtain from exercises max. 40 points, for conferment inclusion it is necessary achieve min. 25 points.
