The Embedded Systems Lab contains the necessary setup to support teaching of computer and embedded systems development. The equipment in the lab includes development boards purchased or sponsored by various manufacturers in this field, such as Altera, ARM and Microchip, as well as other basic lab instruments. Training participants are able to learn the principles for building, programming, testing, and debugging microcontroller and FPGA-based systems.
Embedded systems are expected to play a dominant role in the near future, as more and more industries are moving into this trend and the need for reconfigurable systems increases. Examples of industries that are using embedded systems are the telecommunications sector, transportation systems, medical industry and even consumer electronics.
