Do you know how the supporting hardware in a microcontroller work? Well, you will learn that here. Also as a bonus you will learn how the functions in dumbed-down libraries work.
This is not exactly a hands-on course, not if you don't want it to be. There are no promises on the projects you'll make because I won't force you to build something you didn't choose to. However, I strongly recommend that you code along. Several microcontroller development platforms are showcased, but you should follow the examples with your own microcontroller.
You should know that most lectures have the following elements:
-Actual lecture content
- and QuizzesWho this course is for:
- Makers who have some experience with hardware and would like to learn how these circuits work with as few equations as possible.
- Coders who were introduced to hardware through some development board popular in the Maker movement, such as the Raspberry Pi or Arduino (e.g. blinking an LED, reading push button input)
- Beginners who would rather skip the boring theory and math, and dive into fun hands- on applications that move, light up and make sounds instead.
- This course is not for advanced hardware designers or electrical engineers.
- This is not an introductory Microcontroller course. You will not learn to use an Arduino board by taking this course.
- This is not a theoretical electronics course. Some of the basics are covered but we won't study differential equations, transforms, or transfer functions.
- This is not a programming introductory course. You won't learn C, python or Java by taking this course.
I'm an Electrical and Computer Engineer. I've been teaching Electrical and Computer Engineering at undergraduate and graduate for over 15 years now.
I love hardware, software and teaching.
I have 7 courses on Udemy so far, one on a technique to solve engineering problems easily, a series of 4 courses (so far) on the electronics and algorithms behind microcontroller platforms, and another series on FPGAs.
Among the subjects in the classes I teach on campus, my strongest are Electrical Circuit Theory, Electronic Devices, Digital Design, Computer Architecture, Microcontrollers, Assembly and C Programming for Embedded Applications, Hardware Description Languages, Field Programmable Gate Arrays, Artificial Intelligence, Printed Circuit Board Design and Real Time Operating Systems.
Along with two of my finest colleagues, I created one of the first MOOCs in Spanish, an introduction to the Raspberry Pi. We wrote a conference paper on the outcome of this very successful course.
I recently got a Master of Science in Computer Science at Georgia Tech and I loved every minute of it.Telecom Engineer passionate about new technologies and my family. The general background I have revolves around value added services in mobile services and also product marketing for a major brand of mobile devices. When it comes to hardware design I came across various developer platforms when designing my bachelor's thesis. After 6+ years of experience I became a mommy to my dear Ignacio and
