OVERVIEW

Computers are programmable machines that can execute assemply code. Although feasible, writing such low level code is extremely hard. High level languages allows to encode complex algorithms while abstracting from many physical details of a computer. Embedded devices require to easily switch from to abstract to the physical layer. The C programming language provides the access to both of them.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Provie the students with the know-how and the tools for developing software and, in particular, in the context of mechanic automation and mechatronics 

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Acquire the necessary knowledge for developing C applications

Understand the structure of computers and the relation between the abstract programming objects and the low level hardware aspects.

Improve the understanding of the basic concepts relevant for programming, compiling and verifying the software.

Teaching methods

Oral lecture and practical exercises
