The best way to understand what you will learn in this class is to list the labs you will complete and the example projects we will build. You will complete each lab first in simulation and then on the real board. For each module we will design a system and you will build and test a similar system.
Module 1: Welcome and introduction to course and staff
Module 11: UART - The Serial Interface, I/O Synchronization
Lab 11. Write C functions that output decimal and fixed-point numbers to serial port
Module 12: Interrupts
Lab 12. Design and test a guitar tuner, producing a 440 Hz tone
Module 13: DAC and Sound
Lab 13. Design and test a digital piano, with 4 inputs, digital to analog conversion, and sound
Module 14: ADC and Data Acquisition
Lab 14. Design and test a position measurement, with analog to digital conversion and calibrated output
Module 15: Systems Approach to Game Design
Lab 15. Design and test a hand-held video game, which integrates all components from previous labs. Lab 15 will be graded by having students watch videos of each other's’ games.
Module 16: Wireless Communication and the Internet of Things
Lab 16. Connect a CC3100 booster pack to the LaunchPad and communicate with an access point. Lab 16 will first fetch weather from the internet, and then you will send data to the class server.
