ECE 382 - Embedded Systems I
Schedule EI with your instructor if you are having difficulty with the course material. You must have read the assignment and attempted the homework before requesting EI. Note: You are responsible for material if you miss class, so get notes from someone in your section. For example, if you miss the lesson where your instructor announces a quiz for the next lesson or the instructor assigns homework due next lesson, you are still responsible for the quiz, homework, or any other assignments made. It is in your best interest to check with your classmates after an absence. After you've read the assignment, attempted the homework, and checked with your classmates, you may then schedule EI if you have difficulty with the material - not to make up class.
You must request permission from your instructor for any class absence (with a descriptive reason - don't just send the SCA number) as soon as possible, preferably before the absence occurs. You must use e-mail to notify your instructor.
For all assignments in this course, you may work with any faculty members or students currently enrolled in ECE383 unless otherwise indicated. We expect all graded work, to include software programs, wired circuits, lab notebooks, and written reports, to be your own work. If they aren't, you've copied and will receive no academic credit even if the copying is documented. Further, copying without attribution is dishonorable and will be dealt with as a suspected honor code violation. As in all courses, cadets must document any assistance received in the execution of graded work. If you receive no assistance on an assignment, the use of the Documentation: None statement is mandatory. If no documentation statement exists, the assignment will be returned for correction and the work will be considered at least one day late.
Reading assignments are provided in the syllabus and should be done prior to class. Homework problems are provided in the syllabus. It will be your instructor's prerogative to collect or grade homework.
All exams are closed textbook and notes. Cadets are allowed to use only the provided TI documents and data sheets for exams and quizzes. Both laboratory and classroom work will appear on exams. For missed GRs, the following policies are outlined:
This course is designed to help in your development as a computer or an electrical engineer. As such, we introduce economic considerations as well as manufacturability and sustainability during the first half of the semester and re-emphasize these as we progress through the semester. Feel free to provide feedback on the lessons and labs at any time. If you have ideas to improve or enhance the course, please let me know. The class builds on concepts from the prerequisites so it is important for you to seek help as soon as you need it. Procrastination is truly the enemy in a hardware design course. A little foresight and planning and a lot of effort will result in an extremely rewarding experience serving as the basis for future microprocessor design work.
All grading will be performed in Q2i.
|GRs||40 (1)||25 (2)|
|Quizzes / Assignments||20||10|
You must complete the required functionality for every lab (even for zero credit) to pass the course.
|Grade||Max (Exclusive)||Min (Inclusive)|
All work is due as shown on the assignment or specified by your instructor. If problems arise with graded assignments, see your instructor in advance. Assignments turned in later than the due date without prior permission from the instructor will be penalized as follows (note there is no distinction between "Duty Day" or "Day":
|0 - 24 Hours||25%|
|24 - 48 Hours||50%|
|48 - 72 Hours||75%|
|> 72 Hours||100%|
