Description of contents: programme
The different components of an electronic system will be described, as well as its implementation as a portable device. In addition, the advantages and dissadvantages of integrating an Operating System will be given, and illustrated with examples related to mobile devices (smartphones and tablets), as they are embedded devices familiar to the student. With this knowledge, tele-operation concepts will be explained and detailed, so that an electronic system can include web communication and multimedia support. Also the needed requirements for the electronic system will be described, including the main issues to consider as to improve the user interaction with the system. The detailed programme is as follows: 1. Introduction to the course. Introduction to Electronic Systems Integration. Block diagram of an Electronic System. Alternatives for the Integration of Electronic Systems (localized and distributed) 2. Use of Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows, Linux / Android, iOS 3. Human-Computer Interaction 4. Web interfaces: Introduction and Functionality, Protocols and Use Cases
Learning activities and methodology
LEARNING ACTIVITIES: - Theretical lectures - Theoretical-Practical lectures - Office hours - Work-sharing homework - Individual homework METHODOLOGY: - Professor dissertations using computer and audiovisual means, explaining the main concepts involved and providing those relevant references to allow students to get more in depth in the subject. - Critical reading of international references recommended by the professor. - Jornal papers, reports and manuals for further discussion in class, to enhance and consolidate the knowledge acquired. - Solving practical cases, presented by the professor to the students either individually or in groups - Presentation and discussion in class, under the moderation of the professor, of subjects related to the course. - Development of individual or group reports.
