Embedded Systems Design

By Prof. Anupam Basu   |   IIT Kharagpur
Learners enrolled: 3451
This course on Embedded systems will first the students to the fundamental requirements of embedded systems and the interaction between hardware and software in such systems. Next the course will discuss some basic steps of hardware design, introduce the students to ASIPs, ASICs and FPGAs. Next, the students will be exposed to the very important issue of designing for less power consumption and introduce them to the techniques that are adopted to this end. Since many of the embedded systems will have real time constraints, basic issues of real time operating systems will be discussed. This will be followed by formal specification models and languages, mapping the specification to hardware and software components along with decisions on design tradeoffs and hardware software partitioning. Next, synthesis if hardware and software along with a few of the optimization techniques will be presented. The course will end with a brief overview of design verification methods that are adopted for embedded system design.

Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.

CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE

Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 8 assignments out of the total 12 assignments given in the course.
Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100

Final score = Average assignment score + Exam score

YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CERTIFICATE ONLY IF AVERAGE ASSIGNMENT SCORE >=10/25 AND EXAM SCORE >= 30/75. If one of the 2 criteria is not met, you will not get the certificate even if the Final score >= 40/100.

Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup.It will have the logos of NPTEL and IIT Kharagpur .It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.

Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.

Once again, thanks for your interest in our online courses and certification. Happy learning.
