Specialist Diploma in Embedded Systems
The Specialist Diploma in Embedded Systems is a programme for engineers to develop expertise in the design and development of embedded products and systems. This synthesis-based programme is designed for engineers in the electronics industry, particularly in sectors such as consumer electronics, communications, automotive, industrial automation and avionics. Participants will have access to a whole suite of high-performance development tools, platforms and equipment during the practical sessions and the project development phase to hone their expertise.
On completing this programme, participants will be able to:
Design and develop intelligent products and systems
Implement embedded operating systems
Develop firmware applications and device drivers
Design and implement high-performance signal processing–based platforms and solutions
Design test solutions for intelligent products and systems
Module 1: Embedded Systems Design & Implementation
This module focuses on the design and development processes of embedded systems, design requirements & considerations, hardware/software co-design, development tools and software optimisation.Participants will acquire a solid grounding in RISC-based processors that are widely deployed in embedded systems and the capability to design and develop high performance, low-power intelligent products and systems using RISC-based processors such as the ARM family.
Module 2: Embedded OS Platform Integration
This module focuses on the rapid implementation of embedded OS for the development of intelligent products and systems. Participants will develop expertise in integrating and configuring embedded OS into custom embedded platforms, including the development of device drivers & API.
Module 3: Embedded Systems Programming
This module develops the expertise in software design and development needed to create robust intelligent products and systems for demanding applications. It will take participants through the characteristic features of embedded systems programming including real-time considerations.
Module 4: Digital Signal Processing Design Techniques
This module focuses on the development of digital signal processing in embedded systems. Strong emphasis will be placed on DSP algorithms, design considerations and optimisation for real-time performance in embedded systems.
Module 5: Advanced Digital Systems Design & Implementation
This module provides participants with an in-depth understanding of design flow and implementation in advanced digital system design. Participants will acquire expertise in Hardware Description Language coding, simulation, logic synthesis, integration and be able to design & develop FPGAs and ASICs.
Module 6: Embedded Systems Project
Participants will have opportunity to develop embedded hardware and software for intelligent products andsystems. Case studies will be used to illustrate design considerations for intelligent products and systems development.
