Overview

Learn how to design your own embedded system

On this course from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, you will explore how embedded systems are used in the world around us.

You will learn what makes an embedded system different from a general purpose system (such as a PC) and discover how embedded systems are specialised for a particular use case.

As you explore the iterative design process, you will discover how the purpose of a system affects how it is designed, from choosing its components to the look of the final product. You will also investigate the design of an algorithm and, ultimately, design your own embedded system.
