OUTCOMES AND OBJECTIVES
Outcome 1:
Upon completion of this course, students will interface a micro controller to various electronic and electromechanical devices.

Objectives:

  1. Given an ASCII character, the student will draw the timing diagrams for asynchronous serial data in TTL and RS232 formats.
  2. Given the timing diagram for the Centronics parallel interface, the student will show the proper hardware connections and the assembly code needed to send ASCII characters to a printer.
  3. The student will Interface an LCD display, and by writing the proper assembly code, display messages or patterns.

Outcome 2:
Upon completion of this course, students will program and apply parallel, serial, A/D and timer circuitry to various interfacing projects.

Objectives:

  1. Given the timing diagram for the Centronics parallel interface, the student will show the proper hardware connections and the assembly code needed to send ASCII characters to a printer.
  2. The student will write interrupt service routines to accomplish tasks specified by the instructor.
