Course Description: Develop and learn the working of the 68HCS12. It is an 16bit Microcontroller. You will learn how to write basic assembly language code (machine language) for the device to interpret. Also you will gain knowledge about the Instruction set and addressing modes of the device and learn how to use them for efficient coding. First few lab sessions will involve assembly language coding and in Embedded C afterwards. We will also deal with interfacing the devices with different peripherals like an ADC or a LCD.

Prerequisite: C- or better in EE 2381.

Corequisite: EE 3381.

Each lab report should have the following:
1. Name and SMU ID
2. Lab Session number & objective of the experiment
3. Algorithm and description of the program (25%)
4. Code with comments (25%)
5. Results, screenshots and verification (25%)
6. Post Lab Questions (25%)

You may discuss lab assignments with classmates but all solutions must be original and individually prepared. The SMU Honor Code will be strictly enforced.

Disability Accommodations:
Students needing academic accommodations for a disability must first contact Disability Accommodations & Success Strategies (DASS) at 214-768-1470 or via the DASS webpage to verify the disability and to establish eligibility for accommodations. They should then schedule an appointment with the professor to make appropriate arrangements. (See University Policy No. 2.4.)

Religious Observance:
Religiously observant students wishing to be absent on holidays that require missing class should notify their professors in writing at the beginning of the semester, and should discuss with them, in advance, acceptable ways of making up any work missed because of the absence. (See University Policy No. 1.9.)

Excused Absences for University Extracurricular Activities:
Students participating in an officially sanctioned, scheduled University extracurricular activity will be given the opportunity to make up class assignments or other graded assignments missed as a result of their participation. It is the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with the instructor prior to any missed scheduled examination or other missed assignment for making up the work.
