Wow, I remember Valvano’s class, and possibly know who designed that stellaris board. Any other longhorns on here?
For those wondering “this is boring simple stuff”, keep in mind this is intended for undergrads who are just learning how to write code, and folks who’ve tended to take classes in circuit design/math.
Also, like the occasional interactive JS in some of the chapters: http://users.ece.utexas.edu/~valvano/Volume1/E-Book/C12_Interrupts.htm
I don’t think this is boring or simple at all. It seems like a pretty comprehensive introduction to designing using microcontrollers. After all, you have to start somewhere. In undergraduate, I took a class called Mechatronics that covered a lot of similar topics, except it was more focused on using microcontrollers to control electro-mechanical systems.
