Covers hardware topics such as memory addressing, data registers, instruction execution, the stack pointer, the arithmetic logic unit, and interrupts. Assemblers, editors, and simulation and debug software are used to explore the instruction set and addressing modes of a reduced instruction set computer (RISC). This course contains elements of assembly language programming include the structure of data and algorithm implementation. Introduction to embedded systems design through programming in the C language and interfacing to actual hardware. Programming assignments and a course project are carried out on a 32-bit microprocessor.
