If you’re reading books of microcontroller programming, following different blogs and still feel stuck. Then you came to the right place, this microcontroller programming course designed around most popular 8-bit ATmega328 AVR Microcontroller. In this course, we will learn how to write C Programs for ATmega328 MCU. I’ve made complex concept easy to understand using quality content. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to microcontrollers or already know basics. I am sure you’ll enjoy learning with this course.
We’ll begin our journey to explore microcontroller right from the basics like setting-up official Atmel Studio7 IDE, installing programming utilities and hooking up the circuits in easiest way. To keep the hardware part simple in the beginning, we will use ATmega328 chip on Arduino Uno. Believe me this will save our time at hardware side so that we can focus more on core microcontroller features through AVR C Programming. Later on, as the time rolls on we will use ATmega328 Xplained Mini evaluation kit to learn advance debugging techniques.
"The Biggest objective of this course is to help you build sound understanding of microcontroller architecture and peripheral registers in-order to use them while writing professional embedded systems software”
We will setup every circuit from scratch and write microcontroller firmware for it. We will spend enough time in the beginning to get basics right. This will save time in long run and make you feel confident working with Microcontroller Architecture and C Programming.
Later on, we will be building mini projects to use LED, Switches, Analog and Digital Sensors (temperature/humidity/light Intensity/distance), IR Sensor, Relays and many more. These projects can be small yet very powerful to lay down strong foundation to use GPIO, Timer/Counter, Interrupt, PWM, ADC, Serial UART and other peripherals while developing embedded software and hardware.

the content and its visual presentation is very good but the verbal presentation is difficult to listen to as Umesh speaks far too fast and with many repetitions. although the verbal presentation is difficult, from section 7 there is a marked improvement.
Excellent Course. The entire course is designed in a planed manner. The trainer has covered every aspect of Microcontroller and explained how we can use it in IoT projects. It's not too fast nor too slow. Guys, you will enjoy it. Go for it!!
I really liked this course because it really digs down into how an Arduino works on a lower level than what we see when using the Arduino IDE for example. Coding in C, reading the datasheet, using the Atmega328 registers directly: awesome! Some complex parts could be explained more clearly, and the only thing I'm missing is a "Required parts" overview. Looking forward to more content being added!
Bardzo słaby, tłumaczony powierzchownie, dla osoby która miała styczność z tym zrozumie, ale niczego sie nie nauczy, dla osoby która jest początkująca to wszystko jest tłumaczone zbyt chaotycznie.
It was really a very good course and i am able to learn programing from scratch, till now i was using arduino but now onwards i wish to program in avr studio. Thank You !!
The Course was good enough for someone like me who just wanted an overview of programming a micro controller for a project. Does not go to in depth into the functioning behind the codes, but does give you enough expertise to use the codes to program a atmega328p microcontroller. The part on 'interrupts' could have been better and hs left me a little confused, and that`s why i gave a 4 star. If that part is improved, I am more than satisfied with the course.
I already have some hands on practice on the chip explained in initial videos of this course. This course focuses on development with AVR studio using C programming. It is really helpful for those who not only want to learn and program ATmega328 but also study its internal peripherals and registers etc.. Thank you...!! :)
very nicely explained.. I would also like to know more on I2C and SPI Protocols.. In case u already have some courses on the same, I would like to know their names
course is good. But it would be better if you the complete example of usart with hardware and saving the sensor data into pc.
Hi, I just completed the course. It is a good course but I think its lack of contents. It will be much better if the instructor adds more contents such as I2C, SPI, etc.. Hope to see it soon. Thank you.
The explanations given by the instructor is in details. I didn't feel confused or lost at any time. Even a person with least knowledge will feel comfortable while learning. Great work.
Finished the course, the presenter is very clear and logical...and easy to understand (I have some prior knowledge)...in his presentation of the materials. I find his subject presentation order sensible. Each video lesson is not burdensome and long (and boring). He says just enough to make his point. A bit hard to understand his pronunciation some times...or else I would give him full marks! I would recommend this course to any slightly informed beginner...especially the last few lessons when prior programming knowledge would make understanding the code possible. One note of confusion, in lesson 23, which is essentially the last lesson...the presenter says 'this technique will be used extensively in future lessons'. Are there more lessons coming? Did the presenter never finish the full course lessons?
I liked this course, the instructor give excellent examples, he explain everything pretty good. I liked this course, i want to thank the instructor.
I struggled with the explanation of the HEX number system. I had to look externally for a full explanation so I understood it. Having finished the course I would say it is not really effective for me. I understand all the hardware and the principles involved but without having a knowledge of the C language I could not keep up with the code development. The lack of comments in the code also made it harder to go back and review without having to repeat the whole lesson each tme. So, what I learned from this course is that I need to first learn more about the C language and then try it again.
These video is very helpful towards to my uni study which provide me a good guide. saved me many time and effort
