Course Description

Uplatz presents this extensive course on VLSI, PLC, Microcontrollers, and Assembly Language.

VLSI, PLC, Microcontrollers, and Assembly Language course covers the principles of CMOS and VLSI technologies before moving on to the fundamentals of Microcontrollers and PLCs for industrial usage (Programmable Logic Controllers).

This online course goes into great detail on how the MSP430 Microcontroller works. The course covers the fundamental ideas, organization, syntax, and instruction sets of the Assembly Languages, as well as programming for 16-bit MS-DOS and 32-bit Windows.

VLSI, PLC, Microcontrollers, And Assembly Language Course Overview

Let us look into the concepts discussed in this course in detail:

VLSI

VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) is an integrated circuit (IC) that has several devices on a single chip. Given that numerical definitions are becoming increasingly meaningless as technology develops, it is challenging to define "how many." A VLSI analog part is not the same as a VLSI digital logic part or a VLSI memory part. It also varies by industry.

Very-large-scale integration is the process of integrating or embedding hundreds of thousands of transistors on a single silicon semiconductor microchip (VLSI). VLSI technology was anticipated while high-level computer processor microchips were being created in the late 1970s. Large-scale integration (LSI), medium-scale integration (MSI), and small-scale integration (SSI) technologies have been replaced by VLSI.

PLC

A programmable controller, or PLC for short, is an acronym for programmable logic controller. It is a type of firmware device that is widely utilized in commercial and industrial control applications and is prepared to accept simple software instructions. PLCs may do different types of activities that office computers do, and require different hardware and software to carry out those duties.

PLCs are solid-state industrial computers that monitor inputs and outputs and make logic-based choices for machines or automated processes. A PLC is primarily made for the operation of robotic equipment or manufacturing processes where fault finding, simple programming, and reliability control are required. Originally designed for industrial automation, they replaced electromechanical relay systems.

Microcontrollers

An embedded system's microcontroller is nothing more than a small integrated circuit intended to control a single operation. On a single chip, a typical microcontroller houses a CPU, memory, and input/output (I/O) peripherals. Microcontrollers, also known as embedded controllers or microcontroller units (MCU), can be found in a variety of devices, including vending machines, robotics, office equipment, medical devices, and office machines.

In essence, micro-controllers are straightforward miniaturized personal computers (PCs) made to manage discrete operations on a bigger component (OS). A microcontroller is a single Integrated Circuit (IC) that is often used for a specific application and created to carry out specified functions. It is sometimes referred to as an MCU or Microcontroller Unit.

Appliances, power tools, car engine control systems, and computers are excellent examples of products and gadgets that need to be automatically controlled in particular circumstances, but microcontrollers have a wide range of uses. In essence, a microcontroller collects input, analyzes this data, and then sends a specific action based on the data collected as outputs.

Since microcontrollers are frequently integrated into larger devices with higher power consumption in other areas, they must be designed to function at lower speeds, typically in the 1MHz to 200MHz range.

Assembly Language

Assembly Language is often defined as a low-level programming language. In essence, Assembly Language is just more readable machine code. It employs mnemonics to symbolize the instructions so they are easier to remember even if they can be immediately translated into machine code. It requires the use of an assembler to translate assembly language into machine code.

By doing this, each statement is changed into the precise machine code required for the hardware it is running on. An instruction written in assembly language has a machine code equivalent in a one-to-one correspondence. Machine language and assembly language are unique to each CPU. The majority of assembly language is made up of symbolic representations of a certain computer's machine language.

Machine languages used by various computer manufacturers vary, necessitating the use of various assemblers and assembly languages. Several assembly languages contain features that make programming easier and can be used to translate programmers' written source code into machine language (readable by computers) (e.g., by combining a sequence of several instructions into one entity). Assembly language programming demands an in-depth understanding of computer architecture.
