Intended learning outcomes

The main goal of this discipline is to provide the student with the ability to connect a sensor or an actuator with a microprocessor, making the sensor or actuator capable of providing digital information to a computational application. For the student to meet this goal will have to meet the following requirements:

  1. Know, understand and apply the basic logic functions, AND, OR and NOT in the design of digital circuits.
  2. Know and understand the basic memory cell's operating mode, the flip-flop.
  3. Understand and draw registers and counters using the state machine concept.
  4. Understand and know the internal structure of a RAM (Random Access Memory).
  5. Understand and know the internal structure of a ROM (Read Only Memory).
  6. Know and design the internal structure of a microprocessor using the data routing technique. Physical interconnection of the microprocessor with RAM and ROM.
  7. Know and design unconditional input and output ports.
  8. Know and understand the interruptions and their interruption routines.
  9. Know and understand the internal structure of a microcontroller.
  10. Know and understand serial communication between a microcontroller and a computer.
  11. Know and develop intelligent sensors or actuators using a pair microcontroller-sensor or microcontroller- actuator.
  12. Know and integrate intelligent sensors and actuators in a computational application.
