There are currently no offerings for this unit.


This unit emphasises the practical aspects of designing and implementing digital signal processing and control systems. It also introduces the microprocessor and microcontroller within the microcomputer context. The unit is focuses on the analysis and design of closed-loop physical systems that contain digital computers. The computers are placed within the system to modify the dynamics of the closed-loop systems such that a more satisfactory system response is obtained.


Introduction to Software Engineering, and Introduction to Computer Engineering, and Electronic Systems.

Learning Outcomes
