Course Lessons

Lesson 1

Voltage Dividers

This lesson covers voltage dividers. In it, you will learn Conservation of Charge, Kirchhoff's Laws, and design dividers, as well as their usage and limitations in embedded systems.

Lesson 2

Variable Resistors

Explore the dynamic world of variable resistors, covering potentiometers, resistive sensors like thermistors and photoresistors, and their roles in electronic systems.

Lesson 3

Analog to Digital Converters

Discover ADC fundamentals, operation, types (Flash, SAR), key parameters (resolution, sampling frequency), ratiometric values, and application in embedded systems.

Lesson 4

Signal Processing

Processing signals is essential to handling signals in real embedded systems. This lesson will explore different methods of processing, dive into filtering and apply signal processing to real systems.
