Embedded Systems - ECSE 421
course description
An embedded system is any computer system embedded in a larger product for the purpose of monitoring or controlling some part of the larger system. Embedded systems, unlike general-purpose computer systems, are highly optimized to deliver the best application-specific performance possible under a wide and varying set of constraints. In this course, we will cover the basic elements of embedded system design, including system specification and modeling, the components of embedded hardware and software, and techniques for system validation, evaluation, and optimization. The goal of this course is to familiarize students with each of these aspects of embedded system design and both their relationship with one another and with design and optimization as a whole.
