Informatic networks and systems - 2019

Real-time IT systems


This course will provide training in all the software and hardware techniques sused in the design and realization of real-time computer systems.


The course lasts 5 days (30 hours).


The course is an introduction to real-time computer systems. The aim is to provide engineers and technicians who do not specialize in real-time with a look at the latest developments from the industry to benefit their future projects and discussions with specialists from the field.


Course level: Basic/Advanced

This course is for engineers and technicians who have a basic education in electronics and IT.
