Requisites for this module
BENGH610DA Electronic Engineering
This module will provide the practical and theoretical skills needed to understand the design process of embedded systems. Students will define a specification for an embedded system, discuss methods for implementing reliable systems based on a specification requirement and compare and contrast different embedded systems and their suitability to different applications.
The aim of this module is to provide the practical and theoretical skills needed to understand the design process of embedded systems. Students will define a specification for an embedded system, discuss methods for implementing reliable systems based on a specification requirement and compare and contrast different embedded systems and their suitability to different applications.
After completing this module, students will be expected to be able to:
1. Understand the embedded systems design process
2. Define a specification for an embedded system.
3. Design an embedded system based on a specification.
4. Discuss methods for implementing reliable embedded systems to solve various problems.
5. Compare and contrast different options for the realisation of embedded systems and their suitability for their application domain.
-Characteristics of embedded computing applications and challenges in advanced embedded computing system design
-The embedded system design process
-Hardware and software system design and analysis techniques
-Processes and operating systems
-Embedded communication architectures and multiprocessing
-System design methodologies
-Various embedded systems will be examined as case studies

Disclaimer: The University makes every effort to ensure that this information on its Module Directory is accurate and up-to-date. Exceptionally it can
be necessary to make changes, for example to programmes, modules, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include a change of law or regulatory requirements,
industrial action, lack of demand, departure of key personnel, change in government policy, or withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to modules may for example consist
of variations to the content and method of delivery or assessment of modules and other services, to discontinue modules and other services and to merge or combine modules.
The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications and module directory.
