The Research for Open Source Hardware Used in Embedded Specialty

Ying-Hua ZHA, Qi-Shen ZHU


Embedded specialty students in higher vocational colleges often feel difficult to learn the professional courses because of the difficulty of course contents and high experimental complexity. The open source hardware applies modular hardware design and encapsulates complex software programming methods. It is easy to learn for students. This paper analyzes the characteristics and advantages of open source hardware, such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and so on, and makes teaching practice from the teaching contents, the construction of embedded laboratory and the education of maker. The feasibility of using embedded hardware platform for embedded curriculum teaching is discussed.
