The purpose of this
note is to equip students to competently design small, embedded microcontroller
systems. This note uses a microcontroller as a component in electronic system
design.Our target microcontroller, the Atmel ATMega128, provides extensive I/O
and peripherals. It will be considered as a flexible logic component to be
embedded into a system.
This note covers the
following topics: Microcontroller functions, Communications, Smart nodes, Microcontroller
Technology, CPU trends, Memory trends, Noise reduction, Power consumption,
Integration, Electronic Design Automation and Advanced automotive
This note provides basic implementation details and
procedural information to design and assemble a stepper motor system. Covered
topics are: General System Information, Assembly Procedures, Hardware
Development and Software Development.
