Course Syllabus

Action Items

  • Drop date: Graduate students enrolled in C249A are asked to abide by the undergraduate drop date, typically in the fourth week of classes. If you remain enrolled after this date, you will be expected to complete the course.
  • Lab Section: You must be enrolled in a lab section to take the course. The labs have an absolute upper bound on capacity, and if you cannot get into a lab section, you cannot take the course.
  • Textbook: Introduction to Embedded Systems - A Cyber-Physical Systems Approach, Second Edition, by E. A. Lee and S. A. Seshia, 2015. The book is available in two forms: a free PDF download and low-cost paperback. Note that we will use the Second Edition for problem set assignments, but if you have any previous edition, except for two new chapters on Sensors & Actuators and Security & Privacy, it is similar and will be useful.

    PLEASE, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU USE A UNIVERSITY PRINTER TO PRINT THE PDF. If we catch anyone printing the text on a university printer, it will be treated as an abuse of campus resources. If you are considering printing it on your own printer, please keep the following in mind: Tom's hardware estimates the cost per page of inkjet printing ranging from 3 to 30 cents per page. This means that the cost of printing a 500 page book ranges from a low of $15 to a high of $150. This makes a bound paperback at $35 very competitive...
