Requisites for this module
MSC G40912 Internet of Things
This module will provide the practical and theoretical skills necessary to develop advanced embedded systems. Students will define a specification for an embedded system and discuss methods for reliable systems to solve a variety of problems for various application domains.
The aim of this module is to provide the practical and theoretical skills needed to understand the design process of advanced embedded systems.
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 advanced embedded system.
3. Discuss methods for implementing reliable embedded systems to solve various problems.
4. Compare and contrast different options for the realisation of advanced 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
. Processor architectures
. Instruction sets, processor and System on Chip architectures
. 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.
