An overview of embedded system design education at berkeley
Alberto L. Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, Alessandro Pinto
Pages: 472-499
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086521
Embedded systems have been a traditional area of strength in the research agenda of the University of California at Berkeley. In parallel to this effort, a pattern of graduate and undergraduate classes has emerged that is the result of a distillation...

Undergraduate embedded system education at Carnegie Mellon
Philip Koopman, Howie Choset, Rajeev Gandhi, Bruce Krogh, Diana Marculescu, Priya Narasimhan, Joann M. Paul, Ragunathan Rajkumar, Daniel Siewiorek, Asim Smailagic, Peter Steenkiste, Donald E. Thomas, Chenxi Wang
Pages: 500-528
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086522
Embedded systems encompass a wide range of applications, technologies, and disciplines, necessitating a broad approach to education. We describe embedded system coursework during the first 4 years of university education (the U.S. undergraduate...

Skiing the embedded systems mountain
Ingrid Verbauwhede, Patrick Schaumont
Pages: 529-548
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086523
UCLA teaches students how to master the steep slopes of the embedded systems mountain. The EE201A graduate course connects high-level design specification to embedded implementation. There is a long-standing and wide culture gap between system...

Introducing embedded software and systems education and advanced learning technology in an engineering curriculum
Janos Sztipanovits, Gautam Biswas, Ken Frampton, Aniruddha Gokhale, Larry Howard, Gabor Karsai, T. John Koo, Xenofon Koutsoukos, Douglas C. Schmidt
Pages: 549-568
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086524
Embedded software and systems are at the intersection of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science, with, increasing importance, in mechanical engineering. Despite the clear need for knowledge of systems modeling and analysis...

A curriculum for embedded system engineering
Rudolph E. Seviora
Pages: 569-586
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086525
The paper presents a curriculum for a 4-year undergraduate program in Embedded System Engineering (ESE). The curriculum was developed using a two-step approach. First, a body of education knowledge for Embedded System Engineering was defined. The...

Pages: 587-611
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086526
The design of embedded real-time systems requires skills from multiple specific disciplines, including, but not limited to, control, computer science, and electronics. This often involves experts from differing backgrounds, who do not recognize that...

The embedded software consortium of taiwan
Tai-Yi Huang, Chung-Ta King, Youn-Long Steve Lin, Yin-Tsung Hwang
Pages: 612-632
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086527
The advancement of semiconductor manufacturing technology makes it practical to place a traditional board-level embedded system on a single chip. The evolvement of system-on-chip (SoC) techniques presents new challenges for integrated circuit designs...

What is embedded systems and how should it be taught?---results from a didactic analysis
Martin Grimheden, Martin Törngren
Pages: 633-651
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086528
This paper provides an analysis of embedded systems education using a didactic approach. Didactics is a field of educational studies mostly referring to research aimed at investigating what's unique with a particular subject and how this subject...

Reducing data cache leakage energy using a compiler-based approach
Wei Zhang, Mahmut Kandemir, Mustafa Karakoy, Guangyu Chen
Pages: 652-678
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086529
Silicon technology advances have made it possible to pack millions of transistors---switching at high clock speeds---on a single chip. While these advances bring unprecedented performance to electronic products, they also pose difficult power/energy...

Dynamic delay-constrained minimum-energy dissemination in wireless sensor networks
Hyung Seok Kim, Tarek F. Abdelzaher, Wook Hyun Kwon
Pages: 679-706
DOI: 10.1145/1086519.1086530
Disseminating data generated by sensors to users is one of useful functions of sensor networks. In probable real-time applications of sensor networks, multiple mobile users should receive data within their end-to-end delay constraint. In this paper,...
