COMP5270 (CO527) - OPERATING SYSTEMS AND ARCHITECTURE
EENG5600 (EL560) - MICROCOMPUTER ENGINEERING
OverviewThis module introduces the theory and practice of employing computers as the control and organisational centre of an electronic or mechanical system, and examines issues related to time critical systems. It also provides exposure to practical embedded systems design through practical work, with one assignment exploring the ideas of real-time operating systems introduced in the lectures and a second using a microcomputer programmed in 'C' to control the ignition timing of a simulated petrol engine.
