CENG380S Syllabus

Microprocessors and Microcontrollers

Course Description
This course introduces students to the principles of Microcontroller design and
applications. Students will be introduced to the AVR microcontroller architecture.
Moreover, the course introduces programming using AVR assembly language. Topics
introduced will include: Hardware Architecture, looping, branching, arithmetic and
logical operations, timer, interrupts, Parallel I/O and interfacing. .

Course Outcomes
A student who successfully fulfills the course requirements will have demonstrated an
ability to:
CO-1. Describe the AVR microcontroller architecture.
