ELEC-139C Microcontroller Fundamentals

Credits 2 / 2.5 Contact Hours
Prerequisite: Placement into RDNG-016  (ACSR-016). Prerequisite: ELEC-133  and ELEC-131    
Because of the low cost of Microcontrollers and their versatility as a logic device they now replace virtually all of the logic devices used in the past. Wiring of logical controls are being replaced with programming. Microcontrollers have become the cornerstone of any logical control curriculum. In this module students will learn how to replace older style logic circuits with the device known as a Microcontroller. Topics include how to learn how to connect I/O devices properly as well as how to use some of the tools common to these devices such as development boards and in circuit emulators. The basic instruction set will be covered and used in practical circuits.
