GRBIĆ RATKO, Associate


Familiarise students with the versatility and ubiquity of digital computer systems usage in applications that are not solely intrinsically related to computing and processing information. Show them principles of analysis, definition and synthesizes of computer systems for specialised use as a function of managing and / or control of real processes that utilise appropriate computer architecture. Teach them to recognise, analyse, define, and design digital control systems based on microcomputers, microprocessors and /or DSP systems. Familiarise students with the basic principles of programming of embedded computing systems, circuit design, realisation and application in real control systems.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. distinguish computer systems based on microprocessors, micro-controllers and digital signal processors

2. explain application properties of a microprocessor, micro-controller and DSP in embedded applications

3. define and evaluate requirements, and choose an embedded computer system based upon application requirements

4. analyse and evaluate the applicability of an embedded real-time computer system

5. design software support according to application requirements

6. design hardware of an embedded computer system by using CAD tools
