Enhance the concept of platforms by modeling a system with processor (s) and peripheral (s).


The semester will be divided into two parts: exercises (~ 1 month) and project. In the exercise section, each student will implement small activities to ensure understanding of some basic topics. In the second part, each group will implement a project that will be defined at the beginning of the semester.

All deliveries have an automatic grace period of 24 hours, but I will not accept any justification for postponement based on facts that occurred in those 24 hours. If the activity is delivered after this period, the maximum score will be deducted from 2 points per day of delay, including the days of the weekends when delivery is made electronically.
