Microprocessors are used extensively in the design of any computing facility. It contains units to carry out arithmetic and logic calculations, fast storage in terms of registers and associated control logic to get instructions from memory and execute them. A number of devices can be interfaced with them to develop a complete system application. On the other hand, microcontrollers are single chip computers, integrating processor, memory and other peripheral modules into a single System-on-Chip (SoC). Apart from input-output ports, the peripherals often include timers, data converters, communication modules, and so on. The single chip solution makes the footprint of the computational element small in the overall system package, eliminating the necessity of additional chips on board. However, there exists a large range of such products. While the simpler microcontrollers are cheap, their capabilities (in terms of program size and analog and digital peripherals) are also limited. Such processors may be suitable for small applications. Microcontrollers like 8051, PIC belong to this category.

In this course Introduction to PIC18F Microcontroller, history of PIC18, features, architecture, Memory Organization, Registers are discussed briefly and Basic concepts of assembly language programming i.e., Assembler directives, Data formats, Addressing modes, Instruction set with simple examples are discussed

Embedded Systems STM32 HAL APIs Driver Development

STM32 Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) Drivers: DMA,ADC,UART,TIMERS, GPIO,SPI,I2C,RTC,RCC etc

Students: 182, Price:  Paid

Welcome to the Embedded Systems STM32 Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) Driver Development course.

The STM32 Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) provides a simple, generic multi-instance set of APIs (application programming interfaces) to interact with the upper layers like the user application, libraries and stacks.

The HAL driver APIs are split into two categories: generic APIs, which provide common and generic functions for all the STM32 series and extension APIs, which include specific and customized functions for a given line or part number. The HAL drivers include a complete set of ready-to-use APIs that simplify the user application implementation. For example, the communication peripherals contain APIs to initialize and configure the peripheral, manage data transfers in polling mode, handle interrupts or DMA, and manage communication errors.

In summary, the HAL offers high-level and feature-oriented APIs with a high-portability level. These hide the MCU and peripheral complexity from the end-user.

With a programming based approach, this course is designed to give you a solid foundation in firmware and peripheral driver development for the STM32 family of microcontrollers. The goal of this course is to teach you how to navigate the microcontroller reference manual and datasheet to extract the right  information to professionally  build peripheral drivers and firmware using the STM32 HAL APIs

By the end of this course you will be able to develop drivers for peripherals like the ADC, UART,PWM, GPIO, TIMER,I2C, SPI, RTC, RCC, EXTI etc.  You will also master the STM32 architecture and how to build professional embedded firmware for STM32 microcontrollers.

Please take a look at the full course curriculum.

Base Camp for Embedded System Design

Build Career in Embedded Systems Field

                                                   WHAT IS BASE CAMP 

Base Camp course is a stepping stone for pursuing a higher level course which anticipates a skill set and knowledge.

This is a job oriented course for Embedded Systems Field

This course is also useful for Practicing Technicians, Hardware Engineers, Computer Science Students, mechatronics engineering students and hobbyists.

People who attempt to climb Mount Everest, attend Base Camp which prepares them mentally and physically to face the challenge.

Marathon race participants enhance their stamina with a practice of few kilometers a day.

In short if you looking for some advance activity, you must prepare for it. You should acquire a skill set and knowledge at the beginning itself.

If you will not do so, you will loose the time and money spent for it. Your mind will be filled with dissatisfaction and you will not get anything which is useful.

Course in Embedded System Design is no exception to this. Students often choose this course after graduation or even after final year exams; are over. There is large demand for knowledgeable engineers in this field. Embedded Systems find their place in our every day life. From Mobile phones to Wi-Fi modules, blue tooth speakers, cameras and drones are Embedded Systems.

This course is designed as stepping stone for advanced Embedded system design course.

Duration of full time advanced course is 3 to 4 months and fees are in the range of Rs.45000/-  to Rs.85000/- and course covers many aspects advanced aspects of Design. Refer syllabus before enrollment in the course. There are courses targeted towards specific micro controller and last for 2 to 3 weeks.

A Systematic  step by step approach is used to cover various aspects of assembly and c language programming and interfacing of devices to 8051 micro controller. Examples and sample programs are provided so as to clarify the concepts.  Example programs for AVR , PIC and Raspberry Pi are also provided for reference. Exercises are provided for self study.

Everybody is aware about microprocessor and micro controller.  The main difference between processor and controller is that controller has RAM,ROM,I/O and timers are available on the chip itself. So they are best suited for those applications; where space and cost has limitations

Watch all videos carefully as they all have an application associated with it. The programs discussed in video are of few lines but they find their place in a big program which handles a task. You will find large repetition of small program to create a big application. Text files of programs are provided in respective folders. They  are suitable to use with a target board. Target Board is a hardware for experiment.

After going through all videos you should setup a compiler and flash programmer on your PC. Try all the programs as it is. You will need to make the changes in program as per hardware connections.

Now modify these programs for additional functionality and try them. Suggestion is available with each program but you should apply your own mid for it. This will provide an insight for application development.

After this stage; run all programs on simulator in the compiler. You will find a way to try the changes

in program without hardware. Remember, using simulator sometimes become tricky and you should find a way out.

At last there are some program statements from which you have to write the program from scratch and run it on target board.

After this many programs are available with circuit diagram. Study these programs by using simulator in your compiler. 

PCB design section has sample circuits  for schematic drawing. You should draw all schematics using your own software. I am using Express PCB which is very easy to use. It is more than sufficient for project work. See all details provided in the PCB design section.

Q & A section has some question and answers which are commonly asked in interview.
