Mechatronics and Embedded Systems in general are developed mainly via the programming language C. The course is given in the interface between hardware and software, hardware-oriented programming to handle the interfaces of the microcontroller, via C-programming. C-programming is therefore a tool to understand and use a microcontroller's interaction with the surroundings.
After completed course, course participants should be able to, via C-programming, manage the most common peripherals on a commun microcontroller (ATmega16). Examples are: A/D-conversion, PWM, interrupt, timers and counters.
The equiment needed to complete laboratory assignments are handed out at the start of the course and can be used freely during the course.

Literature and preparations
Completed course MF1016 Basic Electrical Engineering, or the equivalent.
Completed course DD1321 Applied programming and computer science, or the equivalent.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LABA - Laboration, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
