This course introduces and addresses embedded electronic systems, in which most of the components are included in the base plate of the system itself. The characteristics, components, architecture, and applications of embedded systems are presented, and the choice of one of the today's most powerful and most-used embedded systems, this case being the Raspberry Pi, is justified. Operating systems, basic aspects, and connection possibilities of embedded systems are examined, specifically those of the Raspberry Pi. Lastly, programming options, the use of databases, and graphic interfaces of embedded systems are addressed.
