Welcome to the Introduction to Embedded Systems Software and Development Environments. This course is focused on giving you real world coding experience and hands on project work with ARM based Microcontrollers. You will learn how to implement software configuration management and develop embedded software applications. Course assignments include creating a build system using the GNU Toolchain GCC, using Git version control, and developing software in Linux on a Virtual Machine. The course concludes with a project where you will create your own build system and firmware that can manipulate memory.
CU-Boulder is a dynamic community of scholars and learners on one of the most spectacular college campuses in the country. As one of 34 U.S. public institutions in the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), we have a proud tradition of academic excellence, with five Nobel laureates and more than 50 members of prestigious academic academies.

Material good and well presented, the programming assignements are fun but the quizzes are sometimes ambiguous and give you a 'hit or miss' feeling...Overall, I learnt a lot and I'm thankful for that.
I have done a few computer science courses already and some of them were related to embedded systems. This is one of the best so far. Higher level than a introductory course.\n\nHighly advisable.
The course was excellent for me, as a beginner. Of course, the learning curve was steep and the assignments challenging, but I learnt a lot. Thanks you Coursera and University of Colorado, Boulder.
Excellent course. Refreshed all my concepts of Embedded System programming after a long time. Very good introductory course for Campus freshmen who needs to start working on System SW Development.
Is financial aid available?
Can I use a different, but similar development board in this specialization?
The specialization supports assignments and grading only on the MSP432 development board. The course material can translate to other development kits and students are welcome to take this course with their own embedded system, but grading will only be supported and graded with only the MSP432.
And just a reminder that the first course of the specialization doesn’t require you to order any hardware. You will need to obtain the following microcontroller development kit to use for project work in later courses of the specialization: Texas Instruments Launchpad - MSP432p401r. This evaluation kit is available for about $13 US dollars. More information about ordering the kit will be provided in the course.
