Experiments in a microprocessors and microcontrollers course

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Laboratory experimentation is an essential component of a comprehensive learning experience in engineering technology programs. In fall semester 2000, we developed and taught Microprocessors and Microcontrollers, a required junior-level course in the Control Systems Engineering Technology program, by employing a set of software and hardware experiments. The purpose of the laboratory exercises is to introduce students to the practical aspects of microprocessors and microcontrollers and help with achieving the course objectives. This paper briefly describes the course, presents the experiments, and shows how students were exposed to a wide range of concepts and applications. Diagrams are shown and described, as necessary.
