The courses in this specialization can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5340-5343, part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Enroll here.
Embedding Sensors and Motors will introduce you to the design of sensors and motors, and to methods that integrate them into embedded systems used in consumer and industrial products. You will gain hands-on experience with the technologies by building systems that take sensor or motor inputs, and then filter and evaluate the resulting data. You will learn about hardware components and firmware algorithms needed to configure and run sensors and motors in embedded solutions.
You will create hardware and firmware solutions for sensors and motors that take real-time data and process it within an embedded environment. You will measure and record metrology data with oscilloscope traces and use the tools within the embedded system to amplify, filter and optimize the signals.
