  • Short Description

    The students gain advanced knowledge about development with the single-board computers (SBCs).During the course the students work on projects using different components such as sensors and actuators, communication modules and other peripherals. The students can work in teams and develop complex applications based on SBC.Furthermore, they are able to select the necessary components to meet the requirements and then to implement these in their projects.They also document and present their final results.

    Learning Objectives

    The students:

    • plan and implement circuits for applications with single board computers
    • understand the functionality of available interfaces and bus systems
