This is very useful. Is there any pdf version of this session available or can we download this video.

Very good home work, nice compilation and very lucid explanation. Feeedback: (a) Can you cover more finer aspect in second course, e.g. EMI/EMC on GPIO pins? Clock distribution to lower EMI/EMC and similar other aspect. (b) Now it is time to be more conversant with FPGA and Fusion FPGA in perticular. Can you compile similar course for Introduction to FPGA (or prgramabel logic?

There IS a fundamentals of FPGA here: http://www.eetimes.com/electrical-engineers/education-training/courses/4000134/Fundamentals-of-FPGAs Pretty good too, would like a follow on to that one too though...Max???

Thank you very much for this course. It is of a great value to me. Even though printed materials for abound for the topic it takes so much time to read for me it runs into weeks even months but this material has done that in less than two hours.Now I can read my other printed version with more in-depth understanding. Please do well to make these kind of courses available for us it’s highly valued. Thanks once more.

Comparison with the DSP and Microcontroller is very good, good course by NXP. Please keep designing advanced level courses as well for embedded systems.

Just finished the presentation, excellent stuff NXP. Mr. Donovan, thank you for speaking slowly and concisely, I had zero problems following you which can sometimes be a rarity when watching a video training. 5/5

This course is a very good module for today's modern and emerging/younger IC and SOC designers. Especially beginners of MCU and DSP

I found this course very informative and easy to follow. As a technology instructor, who has taught both associate and bachelor level courses dealing with microcontrollers (the 8051 and PIC18), this has provided ideas that I can incorporate into these classes to assist the students in developing projects.
