The topic of the thesis is a programmable embedded system-on-chip (PSoC) integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory and a microcontroller on a single chip. It shows the architecture of the device and the configuration process of an embedded design.
It shows the first step of an electrical design of a complex optical measurement instrument, which is able to switch on a light source, control its stepper motors, give a signal if its moving part approaches to its end switches, and monitor the temperature conditions of its key parts. The paper also explains the electrical concept and the choice of the circuit components.
The thesis describes in detail the designed printed circuit boards, and fits them into a 3 dimensional mechanical design. It describes the prototype electronics starting from sketch. Within this topic, it shows the starting steps with the configured PSoC design in terms of hardware and software. Furthermore, it shows the prepared graphical user interface. Finally, it briefly discusses the results of the investigation and indicates the further development process.
