Summary
Subject deals with basic knowledge of microprocessor technics. In the subject there is very important to know electronics, analog and digital technics.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Main target of the subject is to obtain theoretical knowledge of microprocessor technics and practical experiences with design and applications of microcomputer control systems. Obtained knowledge is a part of general knowledge of electrical engineer especially if he deals with applications of electric drives and their control.
