IoT, Microcontrollers

24.10.2022 - 16.12.2022

Course description

Micro controller operating principles, interfacing technologies and programming techniques will be studied. The aim is in the knowledge level where it will be possible to evaluate microcontroller solutions on different phases of product development for a smart product. The course gives as well a good starting point for further studies or even a career in designing digital electronics and microcontroller solutions.

A review on microcontroller products and operating principles will be given. Sensor input circuits and control output circuits will be studied in detail. There is a training module on object oriented programming and C++ fundamentals for those who haven’t experience on those. The microcontroller programming will be done by using classes and methods offered by an operating system developed especially for microcontroller applications, the ARM Mbed OS. Establishing communication over Ethernet and WLAN ( WiFi ) will be practiced. The developed code will be tested on microcontroller hardware.

Interface technologies for the micro controllers will be studied and practiced both by completing development tasks in an electronic design automation, EDA, tool and by practising with hardware modules. Programming will be practiced with exercises on general programming techniques and on exercises on implementing methods typical for a real time operating system for micro controllers. The developed code will be tested on micro controller hardware. The development tools used for various tasks are online tools and will not require installations on computer.

 

Assessment criteria

Scale 1-5. There are automatically evaluated tasks where the points gained from completed tasks will be visible for the student just after task completion. There are individually evaluated reports which will be evaluated at the end of the course period. The evaluation is based on points awarded in the exercise tasks and short course exams.

 

Course way of working and time table

Online study. Within the given period the students can individually decide the timing of studying the fundamentals and completing the tasks. Content and time allocation can be seen on the e-learning environment Learn/Moodle. The e-learning environment will be accessible to students who are enrolled and accepted as students.

 

Course info

The study does not require anything special on students computer. For the exercises conducted on video it is recommended for a student to use two monitors or one monitor which is large enough. When a student would like to develop a micro controller solution according to his/her own specification it will be advised to reserve 100 e for investing on the development hardware. For the course coding and testing tasks the student will get a small hardware kit for the period of the microcontroller coding exercises.

Course enrolment info

  • Check the implementation plan before enrolling.
  • Write your personal identity number in the correct format on the form! An incompletely reported ID may prevent you from accessing the course. You also can’t transfer a credit to your home university without Finnish ID.
  • Make a note for yourself of which course you have enrolled for
  • Registration is binding. If you have to cancel your registration, please email studentservices@hamk.fi to make room for another student
  • Please note that you will receive an email about approval after the registration deadline of the course.
  • You will receive an email when you have been approved and an ID has been created for HAMK’s information systems. Email sometimes goes into spam, so check your spam as well.
  • We require the registration and use of HAMK ID, because only then can we guarantee the availability of all e-materials during the course.
