This Nanodegree provides an overview of embedded systems. You will cover key components like microcontrollers and microprocessors. You'll explore resources, peripheral devices, and the nuances of analog and digital signals before taking an in-depth look at digital signal processing. Here, you'll delve into clocking, logic circuits, gate combinations, and multiplexers, enabling you to construct advanced logical circuits based on truth tables. Lastly, you will learn how to use breadboards for testing and prototyping and understand the intricacies of synchronous and asynchronous processing in embedded systems. In the final project, you will design and implement a microprocessor-based, digital device-control interface.
