This module focuses on teaching the basics of
microcontroller hardware configuration and programming.
Students will be able to appreciate the wide use of
microcontrollers in systems such as automation, robotics
and consumer electronics. The key topics of this module
include the configuration of General Purpose Input
and Output (GPIO) ports, generation of Pulse Width
Modulation (PWM) waveforms, handling of various types
of interrupts and integration of analogue sensors via
analogue to digital conversion techniques. The learning
processes of students will be enhanced by engaging in
practical programming tasks using PIC18 microcontroller
platforms. Upon completion of this module, students will
have the foundational knowledge and skills to develop
applications on other microcontroller platforms that they
may encounter in future.
