C Programming for Embedded Systems, part I
2 day course
C is still the most common language for programming microprocessors. We offer you a complete introduction course that gives you a kick-start!
This is mainly a hands-on training course.
On this C Programming training course you will learn about datatypes, functions, operators, and expressions. We also talk about standard libraries and programstructuring.
You will gain enough knowledge to start programming yourself, you will have a good platform to start for developing in C.
We have had developers of embedded systems with no or little prior knowledge of C in our minds as participants, when we created this seminar.
To gain the most from this seminar, you must be familiar with programming in one language or the other, but not necessarily C. Maybe you have old knowledge in C that you need to freshen up?
Practical exercises / Tools
This class has many exercises included, showing the advantages of programming in C for microcomputers.
Each theoretical part is followed by a practical exercise. We perform the exercises on a PC under teacher’s supervision.
We use an integrated Windows environment. You will edit, compile and link you code via a compiler from Keil, and a Lauterbach-debug connected to an ARM Cortex-M3 board.
