Summary

The course focuses on the application of ARM Cortex M microcontrollers and their use in biomedical engineering. The syllabus of the subject has three sub-sections. The first part explains the basic concepts in the field of microprocessors and microcontrollers. The middle part of the subject deals with the individual peripherals of the microcontroller and their usage possibilities. The last part explains the application of a microcontroller in biomedical engineering by basic control and measurement tasks. Laboratory work in the subject includes mainly practical work with development kits.
