Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

9.5 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

10.0 / 10
This course was last updated on 4/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

We analyzed factors such as the rating (0.0/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

8.6 / 10
Video Score: 7.8 / 10
The course includes 1h 54m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
Detail Score: 8.5 / 10

The top online course contains a detailed description of the course, what you will learn and also a detailed description about the instructor.

Description

This course is for experts with immediate knowledge in Arduino/AVR architectures. It takes existing knowledge further and applies it to execute a program that is divided into several tasks. Those tasks can then run while the CPU idles, interleaving the computational part of the tasks resulting in a faster overall program execution and lower power consumption. Therefore, instead of manually interleaving tasks to increase the efficiency of the embedded system with the goal to prolong the battery life by increasing the sleep periods, the interleaving is handled automatically and dynamically adapting to the current situation without impacting the readability of the source code. In this course existing solutions are presented and one of them is explored in extensive depth.
The course covers topics such as
•The Operating System and the Kernel
•Scheduler for the Arduino Platform and AVR architecture
•Preemptive scheduling policy
•Cooperative scheduling policy
•Inter-Process Communication (IPC)
•Semaphore/Mutex
•Channel/Queue
•Existing Schedulers for Arduino
•Modification and Implementation of a low-power Scheduler for the AVR architecture
The course ends with a practical session, in which an adaption of a scheduler depending on the Arduino platform is presented. The modified scheduler is then further extended to support sleep modes in the exercise. As usual, the complete exercise includes several hints and a possible solution.

Researcher at Barcelona Supercomuting Center
In my capacity as assistant and adjunct professor at various institutes in India and Singapore, I gained extensive experience how to communicate theoretical concepts. My approach is more practically oriented and I follow the principle: Learning by doing.Due to my research, I became an expert in cybersecurity with significant practical experience in embedded systems, processor architectures, and FPGAs.Some successful projects in those areas:Embedded Systems: Battery powered devices have been deployed in Antarctica to monitor nesting behaviors. Such harsh environments are challenging in terms of components, but especially the limited power resources. The software needed to be highly optimized to squeeze every bit out of those batteries to maximize its operational lifetime.Processor Architectures: Side-channel attacks are attacks which use a involuntary channels to leak information. Those channels are often unavoidable consequences of computations and include electromagnetic emission or power consumption of the processor. In this project the aim is to harden the processor against side-channel attacks by modifying the processor itself and to make the compiler side-channel aware. The processor that has been used for this project is the new RISC-V.FPGAs: Those devices are perfect for machine learning (ML) algorithms due to their spatial (parallel) computation capabilities. While interference latencies are usually reduced by using GPUs, those processors have a power budget that is too high for embedded systems. FPGAs offer a flexible alternative, however the data interface to load weights for the neurons is limited. In this project, new algorithms and symmetries are developed to achieve high accuracy and throughput.
