Embedded C Training: Programming Methods and Tools for Embedded Applications

This training focuses on the hardware-near C-programming of 8, 16 or 32 bit microcontroller architectures. You can identify and avoid the pitfalls and stumbling blocks related to C programming .You learn how to program a HW abstraction layer according to an architecture model. Operating system mechanisms and services are explained by programming a scheduler. You get an overview of the whole lifecycle of a product - from the idea to project planning, software development process, test planning, quality planning, acceptance, commissioning, operation and decommissioning.

This training focuses on the hardware-near C-programming of 8, 16 or 32 bit microcontroller architectures.

You learn how to program a HW abstraction layer according to an architecture model. Operatingsystem mechanisms and services are explained by programming a scheduler.

You get an overview of the whole lifecycle of a product - from the idea to project planning, software development process, testplanning, quality planning, acceptance, commissioning, operation and decommissioning.

You are able to efficiently develop programs for an embedded system in "C" according to the guidelines of modernsoftware engineering.

You are familiar with using pointers, function pointers and structures.

Based on your knowledge of programming/coding guidelines and software quality features, functional and non-functional requirements as well as internal quality and generate software that is reusable, extendable and easily tested.

In addition, you know all stages of a software development process, from the idea to system acceptance.

Software developers, software architects

A good understanding of ANSI-C and microcontroller architectures.
