Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In this class, lectures will be given in relations to the industry department
of high schools and "information and computer" of technology in junior high schools. Through practices of microcontroller(PIC) and C-language, students will have deep understanding of hardware necessary for measuring and controlling, and have practical capabilities.
Class Schedule Lesson1: Course guidance
Lesson2: Basics of C language
Lesson3: Control flow of C language
Lesson4: Programming of C language in PIC (Development environments)
Lesson5: Operation of special function registers of PIC by C language
Lesson6: Bit-operation in PIC microcomputer by C language
Lesson7: State transition diagram
Lesson8: Circuit diagram and practical wiring diagram
Lesson9: Motor driver and potentiometer
Lesson10: The forward and backward rotations of a motor with a motor driver
Lesson11: Control of motor (CW/CCW rotations) from PIC microcomputer
Lesson12: Measurement of noises of a motor
Lesson13: AD (Analog-to-Digital) conversion, comparator
Lesson14: PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) signal generated by PIC microcomputer
Lesson15: Summary

Students must submit reports on practices. 
Handouts. The textbook will be indicated in the course guidane. 
PC or AV used in
(More Details) Students will use their laptop computers and bread boards. 
Learning techniques to be incorporated  
Suggestions on
Preparation and
Students cannot understand PIC programming without understanding hardware of PIC microcomputer.  
The instructor therefore recommends students reviewing contents of "Seminar on Teaching Materials for Hardware".  
Grading Method Comprehensive evaluation from activities in a class and reports. 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Message What students learn in this course will be used in "Digital Control".  
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
