About the Edition

This thesis documents the design of the hardware and embedded software of a digital computer that provides autonomous control of the PANSAT spacecraft. The system was designed for use during a two year mission in a low earth orbit. The computer uses an Intel M80C186XL running at 7.3728 MHz, 512 kbytes of error-detection and correction RAM, 64 kbytes of ROM, and standard CMOS components to provide a general purpose microcomputer. The purpose of the computer is to control all subsystems of the spacecraft, perform analog-to- digital conversions, orchestrate duplicate hardware components to provide redundancy, and upload new software from a ground station. The hardware system was built on printed circuit boards which were manufactured by the Space System Academic Group and tested for proper operation. The embedded software was coded using 80186 Assembler and the C programming language, tested for proper operation, and placed into ROM as firmware.

In the satellite software world, the standard is to "test like we fly." (I imagine the automotive industry does the same.) All of the software in the system will be tested together for weeks or. Exploring Embedded-Systems Architectures with Artemis (Andy D. Pimentel, Louis O. Hertzberger, Paul Lieverse, Pieter van der Wolf, Ed F. Deprettere ; IEEE Computer Magazine ) - Because embedded systems mostly target mass production and often run on batteries, they should be cheap to realize and power efficient. An embedded system is any electronic system that uses a CPU chip but that is not a general-purpose workstation, desktop, or laptop computer. It is a specialized computer system that is part of a larger system or a machine. Embedded systems are used in many places, such as automobiles. What functions would such an embedded system control?

An embedded system is a computer system—a combination of a computer processor, computer memory, and input/output peripheral devices—that has a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system. It is embedded as part of a complete device often including electrical or electronic hardware and mechanical parts.

Because an embedded system typically controls physical operations of the machine that it is embedded within, it often has real-time computing constraints. Embedded.
