#IT-02-11 Design and Prototype Embedded Computer Systems
About CourseRaspberry Pi Foundation
Learn how to design your own embedded system
On this course from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, you will explore how embedded systems are used in the world around us.
You will learn what makes an embedded system different from a general purpose system (such as a PC) and discover how embedded systems are specialised for a particular use case.
As you explore the iterative design process, you will discover how the purpose of a system affects how it is designed, from choosing its components to the look of the final product. You will also investigate the design of an algorithm and, ultimately, design your own embedded system.
What Will I Learn?
- Compare embedded systems to general-purpose systems
- Investigate the design of a smartwatch as an example of an embedded system
- Apply a design process to both an algorithm and a whole product
- Develop a prototype of an embedded system

Given the value of knowledgeable guidance in the world of embedded programming this is a great introductory course.
This course basically covers everything that you need to get started with embedded development.
This is something which beginner's, like me, can trust on. Everything is explained clearly and in every possible detail.
It is a very user-friendly course and the content was well-taught. It isn't difficult even for a beginner. Highly recommended for anybody want to learn more about microcontroller.
