|Course title||Embedded System Design
|Course description||This course introduces the techniques for building embedded systems such as the use of microprocessors, interfacing memory systems and timing control of digital signals. It also discusses peripheral input/output interfacing methods such as: timer, serial and parallel interfaces, analog-to-digital conversion, polling, interrupt and device driver developments. Assembly language programming will also be introduced: concepts of addressing modes, data manipulation, control flow instructions, programme linkage and relation to high level languages.
本科介紹構建嵌入式系統之方法，如微處理機使用、存儲器接口和控制信號的處理技術等；亦會討論外設輸入/ 輸出接口如：定時器、串行和並行接口、模擬到數字轉換、輪 詢、中斷和設備驅動程序等。相關軟件方面包括彙編語言編程知識如：尋址模式概念、數據處理、控制流指令使用、程序聯動及與高級語言之關係等。
