Autonomous embedded systems design


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain main subsystems as follow :
* Energy Management:
* converter architectures (DC-DC, LDO, Band-Gap ...)
* charging architectures and storage (Lipo, Li-ion ...)
* Interfacing:
* between logic levels (strong currents, voltage levels, EMC, thermal protection,...)
* between the microcontroller and peripherals based on the current waveforms
* with power actuators (smart MOS)
* Communication:
* protocols: I2C, SPI, CAN, OneWire
* RF protocols: XBee, 868MHz, 433MHz RFID
* On-board intelligence:
* Reconfigurable digital and analog architectures (FPAA)
* Display:
* Automotive dashboards
* Screens / touchscreens
The student will be able to:
- write specifications
- choose components and design the architecture
- design a battery and its management system
- interconnection of boards
- microcontroller programming
- build and test analog circuits using FPAAs.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
