6.115 Microcomputer Project Laboratory
Introduces the analysis and design of embedded systems. Microcontrollers provide adaptation, flexibility, and real-time control. Emphasis placed on the construction of complete systems, including a five-axis robot arm, a fluorescent lamp ballast, a tomographic imaging station (e.g. a CAT scan), and a simple calculator. Introduces a wide range of basic tools, including software and development tools, peripheral components such as A/D converters, communication schemes, signal processing techniques, closed-loop digital feedback control, interface and power electronics, and modeling of electromechanical systems. Includes a sequence of assigned projects, followed by a final project of the student's choice, emphasizing creativity and uniqueness. Final project may be expanded to satisfy a 6.UAP project. Provides instruction in written and oral communication.
