Course goal

The goal of the course is stated in the Course Syllabus as

To develop an understanding of hardware/software interactions in computer systems with parallel activities and time constraints, and to develop basic skills for integration of software using a real-time operating system.

Prerequisites

  • Computer Hardware and Architecture
  • Programming and Data Structures
  • Project Course in Electronics
or corresponding courses.

Books

The course book is given in the Syllabus as Realtidsprogrammering, from Studentlitteratur. It is sold as an e-book, but it should also be possible to borrow it as an e-book from the Linköping city library . (And it is of course available as a reference in the university library.)

Teaching language

  • The course language is Swedish. Lectures etc. will be held in Swedish.
  • Written material produced by LiU (the course teachers) will be in English.
  • Written material produced by students may be in either English or Swedish.

Software

The course textbook uses the real-time operating system Simple_OS, which has been developed for the purpose of edcuation and research. For additional information, please visit the Simple_OS documentation page. In the 2016 version of the course we will not utilize most of SimpleOS, but we will use the java GUI which is included in the Simple_OS distribution for almost all labs and assignments in the course.

Hardware

The course assignments use Intel-compatible PC computers, running Linux (or possibly Windows for some labs if you have Cygwin installed).

Organization and Requirements

The course consists of lectures, assignments, labs, and a written exam.

Lectures

As a supplement to the course lectures, there are course lecture notes. For more information about the lectures, see the the Lectures page.
