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Course content can become outdated quite quickly.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

9.4 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (4.6/5) 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

10.0 / 10
Video Score: 10.0 / 10
The course includes 28h 26m 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.
The average video length is 6 hours 26 minutes of 33 Embedded Systems courses on Udemy.

Brief Description
This Course Demystifies the internal working of the Micro-controller and its Peripherals.
Coding for the Peripherals STEP-BY-STEP and Developing software drivers completely from scratch by extracting maximum information from Datasheets, Reference manuals, specs, etc
Protocol Decoding Using logic analyzers, Debugging, Testing along with Hints and Tips.

Long Description:
Learning Embedded System Programming can be a challenge. Since it’s a relatively little complex field, there’s no real gold standard yet for how things are practiced, or taught, which can frustrate people who are just trying to learn new things and couldn’t able to connect the dots and this is the motivation behind creating this course to help engineers and students to learn different aspects of embedded systems by providing high-quality advanced lectures with relatively low price.Learn at your own pace using the progressive method, with each of my short, info-packed lectures.

Master Behind the Scene working!I
created this course because I believe your time is precious, and you shouldn’t have to hunt around to get a practical foundation In Embedded System Programming. In this course, you are going to learn writing your own peripheral driver for most of the commonly used peripherals such as GPIOs, I2C, SPI, USART, etc. and interesting thing is that you are going to learn everything from scratch.
No 3rd party libraries!
No blind coding!
Write your own Driver APIs by dealing with the Peripheral Registers of the MCU!
Code and Implement APIs from scratch, diving into the datasheet and reference manual of the MCU. I will thoroughly explain how to extract the maximum information from datasheets, Technical Reference manuals to configure and handle peripherals. These techniques you can go and apply to any MCUs you have at your hand.
In this course, I will walk you through step by step procedure how to Configure various Peripherals like GPIOs, SPI, USART, I2C by taking you into the reference manual and data sheet. We will develop a fully working driver code, interrupt handlers, sample application everything from scratch to understand the big picture.
In each lecture, I assure you that, you will definitely learn something new that you can definitely use in your work or projects. You’ll find yourself handling these peripherals with much more clarity and you will be able to quickly speculate and debug the problem and I’ll show you tricks and tips to debug the most common problems using debugging tools such as logic analyzers.

This is not Arduino Style of programming!
I believe Arduino is for quick prototyping of products but not for Mastering Working of micro-controllers and its peripherals.Unlike Arduino programming where you come up with a quick solution and prototyping of products using third-party libraries, this course is entirely different. In this course, no 3rd party libraries are used. Everything we will code by referring to the Technical reference manual of the MCU and create our own library. The Power of this approach is when things go wrong in your project work due to bugs, you can quickly able to speculate problem and debug like a pro. If one thing me and my students are good at is “debugging”. To achieve good debugging skills its very important you code by understanding how things work behind the scene but no by just blindly using some third party libraries and that’s the biggest TAKE away from this Course.
The course is designed and explained in such a way that, it is generic across any kind of microcontroller. The code we develop can be used as templates to quickly come with a peripheral driver for your MCUs on-chip peripherals.

Software/Hardware used:
In this course, the code is developed such a way that, It can be ported to any MCU you have at your hand. If you need any help in porting these codes to different MCUs you can always reach out to me! The course is strictly not bound to any 1 type of MCU. So, if you already have any Development board which runs with ARM-Cortex M3/M4 processor, then I recommend you to continue using it. But if you don’t have any Development board, then check out the below Development boards.

1.  STM32F407xx based Discovery board ( This is the board used in this course )
MCU Vendor: STMicroelectronics

IDE : STM32CUBEIDE (Free)

My promise!
I am confident that this course will save you many, many hours of studying/experimenting/googling time to learn about Programming the MCU. I will personally answer your questions about this material, either privately or in a group discussion. If you are in any way not satisfied, for any reason, you can get a full refund from Udemy within 30 days. No questions asked. But I am confident you won’t need to. I stand behind this course 100% and am committed to helping you.
