Cache memory is a set of memory locations that serves fast access applications. Cache memory can store both data and instructions. Both data cache…
Embedded Systems: Preface
Aim of the study element
To introduce students to the concept of embedded systems, it’s methodology and technologies. This chapter will familiarise students with the major software and hardware for embedded systems, modelling techniques and behaviour analysis of designed embedded systems.
Having successfully completed this element you will be able to:
- Easily define embedded products, and know the basic concepts of embedded systems.
- Be familiarised with embedded sowtware and hardware building systems.
- Perform low- and high-level design of embedded products.
- Be familiar with the platform and architecture of microprocessors, memory and other components used for embedded systems design.
- Perform a coding of microcontrollers in accordance to tasks.
- Introduction and basic concepts of embedded sysytems.
- Microprocessor basics.
- Real-time operating systems.
- Tipes of dynamic behaviours.
- Design of embedded systems.

An embedded system is a computer system without a user interface. A user interface can be indicated by buttons, a touchscreen sensor, remote controls…
The basic computer consists of four blocks: processor, memory, input and output. Let's consider the role these blocks play in information processing. The peripheral…
Embedded processors can be combined in a groups, architecture. They vary by the processes they can execute. And if they can proceed the same…
An embedded processor consists of CPU, memory, I/O, and busses. There are two models that describe CPU operation – von Neumann and Harvard architecture…
Processor input and output units are responsible for moving in and out information to and from processor. Any system (embedded/non-embedded, electrical, electromechanical, and other)…
Memory manager is an integrated circuit that helps to resolve issues related to the way how CPU software sees memory logical, virtual and physical…
Data cache operates in two modes: write-through; write-back. In case of write-through mode data is written in cache and in source memory when it…
