This course covers software and hardware design for real-time embedded systems. Topics include real-time implementation of DSP algorithms, code and hardware optimization for speed and power, real-time operating systems, reliable operation, and overall system architecture. In the laboratory, students will apply selected concepts learned in the lectures by implementing them on a development board centered around a DSP-oriented microcontroller. This course uses C as the programming language. There is some interaction with assembly code. Tutorial time early in the course is available to bring students back up to speed on selected topics such as C programming.
- No prerequisites are required for this course.

Labs to be scheduled outside of class hours on a schedule to be determined on the first day of class. Registrants who are not BTech Electronics students must have approval from the program head. Please contact Katie Howard at 604-432-8237 or email@example.com for more information, or to be placed on a wait-list if the course is full. Note: BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current in your myBCIT account.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Select a processor or other implementation platform for the real-time embedded task at hand.
- Design and implement hardware interfaces, including the related software.
- Understand real-time operating system concepts including scheduling, interrupt handling, context switching, task synchronization, and resource sharing.
- Predict and measure real-time performance.
- Consider all aspects, including software and hardware, and technical and non-technical concepts, in the design of real-time embedded systems.
