Lab Workshop on Embedded ‘C’ and ARM Cortex Microcontrollers’

Jointly offered by NIELIT Calicut & ARM in association with NPTEL

About the Program

Embedded systems are a ubiquitous component of our everyday lives. As our world has become more complex, so have the capabilities of the microcontrollers embedded into our devices. The ARM® Cortex family represents a new class of microcontrollers much more powerful than the devices available a decade ago. Over the years there has been an increased demand for skilled Embedded  engineers in industries. This is due to the tremendous advances in Industry 5.0 , IoT, AI/ML, and other smart technologies, all of which rely on embedded systems.

The objective of the course is to give students solid introductory knowledge on C Programming and Embedded system application development using ARM Cortex Microcontrollers. This course uses open source gcc compilers under Linux platform and tools such as Keil and STMCube IDE as embedded software development tools. As a part of this course, we are introducing a remote hardware Lab, and the participants  will be able to  configure a variety of peripherals, write numerous programs, and see their  work executed on their own embedded platform.This course can be very useful for UG as well as PG students, along with research scholars in the initial phases of their PhD study and course work.
