Embedded systems are computer systems that are encapsulated into larger products, and that are normally not directly visible to the user. Embedded systems are responsible for the information processing in transportation systems (e.g., airplanes, trains, cars), telecommunication equipment (e.g., mobile phones), and consumer electronics products (e.g., TVs, DVD-players).
In this course we will study the theoretical foundations and practical tools that are needed to build reliable and efficient embedded systems.
- Specification: review of the most commonly used languages employed in the specfication of embedded systems (e.g., StateCharts, Petri nets, and VHDL);
- Embedded hardware: sensors, communication units, processing units, memories, and actuators;
- Embedded software: embedded operating systems, scheduling algorithms;
- Hardware/software codesign: methods for the optimal division of labor between the hardware and software parts of an embedded system;
- Validation: methods for ensuring that an embedded system behaves as expected: simulation, testing, formal verification.
