EMBEDDED SYSTEMS (ΔΤ3602) up.gif
Kaskalis Theodoros     

Objective
The subject aims to present the Embedded Systems’ ecosystem in a practical and also in a managerial way. The final target is the understanding of the immense penetration of digital technologies in everyday life and the methods that will allow this “ubiquitous” computing practice to become profitable business. The subject presents the design of hardware and software under a common perspective.
Content
Embedded Systems’ definition, characteristics, applications, demands. General and special purpose microprocessors, ASICs, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs). Design, development, control and production methods. Electronic Design Automation tools. Proper function verification. Final product design and prototyping. Peripheral devices, serial and parallel communication. On-board and off-board circuit communication. Sensors, actuators. Conversion between analog and digital signals. Microcontrollers: families, characteristics, evolution, applications.

Vergidis Konstantinos     

Objective
Content
Enterprise Architectures provide a holistic view of the Organisation that unified its various aspects such as: Business Processes, Information Systems, Human Resources etc. Throughout the course, various Enterprise Architecture Frameworks are presented that enable this holistic (re)structuring of the Organisation based on specific rules, constructs and principles. Enterprise Architectures allow the modelling and analysis of various aspects of the Enterprise in a systematic manner. They are an essential tool of design and analysis of complex business information systems. The course introduces software tools for the student to design and build a complete business model based on the principles of Enterprise Architectures.

QUALITY ASSURANCE AND QUALITY CONTROL TECHNIQUES (ΔΤ3302) up.gif
Nikolaidis Ioannis     

Objective
This course constitutes one of the most important “extensions” - applications of Probability and Statistics. In its framework students are presented with some simple and other more developed quality control techniques for products or processes, which can be applied in any type of factory. During this course students get in touch with industries through case studies and exercises of the real world. Finally, students become familiar with the relevant software.
Content
Introduction, basic knowledge on Probability and Statistics. Basic knowledge on Quality. Quality management systems. Acceptance sampling for attributes. Acceptance sampling by variables. Process capability analysis. Control charts: general rules and principles. Control charts for attributes or variables. Advanced control charts. Design of a control chart. Basic knowledge on Quality Assurance Standards.
