Real-Time Systems

Course Description

This course focuses on abstract models of algorithms and their applications to real-time operating systems and the resource management and quality of service issues that arise, and construct sample applications on representative platforms. As part of the course students will complete a series of real-time simulations. The course is designed to prepare students to understand the theoretical background and some of the practical applications in the field of real-time systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • Evaluate the suitability of an operating system for real-time applications.
  • Analyze the important characteristics of real-time systems.
  • Evaluate real-time systems’ requirements, design, and performance.
  • Assess requirements for real time systems.


Course Description

This course describes various coding and modulation theories and techniques used in communication systems. Students will study different modulation formats and their effects on communication channels, effects on channel capacity, and impacts on system design.

Learning Outcomes

  • Analyze various communication network systems and standards deployed around the world.
  • Evaluate physical limitations that affect the performance of communications channels
  • Model propagation channels and determine the parameters that affect their performance
  • Analyze the different techniques and tradeoffs used to increase network quality and overall capacity
