This unit introduces the student to the design of a micro controller based system, which will interface with external devices. Topics to be addressed include: specification, hardware and software design, interfacing via I/O to external devices, peripherals, project construction, testing and documentation. The choice of micro controllers is reviewed but the unit will be taught using the AVR ATMega128 micro controller using the C programming language. Students may however use a micro controller and programming language of their own choice to complete the required tasks.
Three assignments (20%, 50%, 30%) 100%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must achieve at least 50% in the project demonstration and construction (this includes an oral component that must be passed) and compulsory attendance is required by all students to unit-specific activities at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus. These unit-specific activities may be undertaken either at scheduled sessions on multiple days during the trimester or during a single day of unit-specific activities scheduled during Week 9.
