Microprocessor Seminar By Shaocheng Luo

Fall 2016

   The microprocessor is one of the most important components of a digital computer, and has been applied to diverse intelligent devices. It acts as the brain of the computer system, and controls every functionality. As technology has progressed, microprocessors have become faster, smaller and capable of doing more work per clock cycle. This seminar is designed to help each lab mate in facilitating development of embedded system applications. By finishing the seminars, our lab mates shall have a systematic concept what the microprocessor is, and how we use it. Finally, each lab mate shall be capable to build electrical control system for their own robots.

Following is the 8 week Lab Schedule:
Week 1: Introduction to the seminar
Week 2: Introduction to ATmega 128, and C programming language
Week 3: Interrupts and Interrupt Controllers
Week 4: Introduction to peripherals interfacing, communication protocols
Week 5: Motor control – with Arduino development kit
Week 6: Control scheme design in DC motor control
Week 7: Sensor Reading
Week 8: Introduction to Arduino
