Microcontrollers and Applications 2

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Microcontrollers and Applications 2
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Electrical Engineering - Renewable Energy and System Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019
Module code: DFBEES-409
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+2P (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 4
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

DFBEES-409 (P610-0011) Electrical Engineering - Renewable Energy and System Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 4, mandatory course, technical
E2601 (P211-0114) Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2018 , semester 6, mandatory course, technical
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Michael Kleer
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Michael Kleer

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to understand a microcontroller system and commission it for a given task. This module focuses on application-relevant aspects. Students will be able to independently find solutions to new tasks.Based on the previous lecture, this module will familiarize students with the applications of microcontrollers in defined areas of automation technology. The interaction of relevant peripheral components will be explained in detail and students will be able to practice their use based on examples. Students will be able to understand a microcontroller system in an automation application with its interfaces to bus systems and commission it for a given task. Our primary focus will be on the application of these skills.
