Vision

The Microprocessor Interfacing Laboratory (MIL) has as vision to provide the most advanced education environment for the development of microprocessor-based embedded systems and applications in Puerto Rico.

Mission

Its mission is to enable undergraduate and graduate students acquire the necessary skills to design and prototype electronics systems based on microprocessors and embedded controllers.

Activities

The MIL provides infrastructure to the Embedded Systems Design course (ICOM-4217). Here, students from our Computer and Electrical Engineering programs have the opportunity of applying learned concepts in hardware and software design to develop typical applications of embedded computers through a semester-long class project. The typical cycle includes writing a project proposal, designing and implementing it, and demonstrating its functionality in a working prototype. These activities promote in the students the development of practical engineering thinking, team-working, and communication skills in a setting where professional criteria prime in every design decision.
