LernzielUltra Low Power Microcontroller (MCU) – Firmware Programming and Sensors Interfacing using an Arm Cortex-M (STM32) Microcontroller

Microprocessors are used to execute big and generic applications, while microcontrollers are low cost and low power embedded chips with program memory and data memory built onto the system which are used to execute simple tasks within one specific application (i.e. sensor devices, wearable systems, and IoT devices). Microcontrollers demand very precise and resource-saving programming, therefore it is necessary to know the processor core, and particular importance has the investigation of the microcontroller's hardware components (ADC, clocks, serial communication, timers, interrupts, etc.).

The STM32 from STMicroelectronics has gained in popularity in recent years due to its low power and ease of use. The goal of this course is the development of understanding the internal processes in the microcontroller chip from TI. This will enable you to conduct high-level-firmware-programming of microcontrollers, to learn about the STM32 MCU features, benefits, and programming and how they can be connected with sensors, acquire the data, processing them and send the information to other devices. The course will also include an introductive lecture on machine learning and artificial intelligence on the embedded system and in particular microcontrollers. The C language will be used to program the microcontroller.

The course will be taught in English.
