This course is broken into a day of C language review, including variable naming, usage, and modifiers as well as an introduction to the Software Development Kit (SDK) environment, an explanation of the use of the preprocessors, program control, and proper use of functions. The second day consists of common issues and techniques employed by embedded programmers in the Xilinx SDK environment. This comprehensive course equally balances lecture modules with practical hands-on lab work.
