Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to understand a microcontroller system and commission it for a given task. This module focuses on application-relevant aspects. Students will be able to independently find solutions to new tasks.Based on the previous lecture, this module will familiarize students with the applications of microcontrollers in defined areas of automation technology. The interaction of relevant peripheral components will be explained in detail and students will be able to practice their use based on examples. Students will be able to understand a microcontroller system in an automation application with its interfaces to bus systems and commission it for a given task. Our primary focus will be on the application of these skills.
