|Description||This module presents the main hardware elements of microcomputers in embedded systems, including their function and how to use them in system designs. It deals with complete hardware system analysis including the design of memory address decoding schemes for small to medium microcomputers and the use of programmable timer modules. Assembly language programming is examined in detail with emphasis on modular programming techniques. A practical application is developed in the laboratory to practice these techniques.||A brief description of the module.|
