  • relate criteria for the selection of suitable hardware architectures for an embedded system
  • conceptually model and formally specify embedded systems
  • design and analyze transistor circuits, dynamic systems and control loops
  • model analog systems,
  • compare modeling techniques with each other and to apply suitable techniques for system development,
  • assess fundamental risks in the design of embedded systems


  • Any introduction text book to electronics.
  • Any introduction text book to mechatronic systems.
  • Concrete literature will be announced in the lecture.
