UEEIC0010 - Develop and test code for microcontroller devices

TAFE Victoria logo
Unit code: UEEIC0010 | Study level: TAFE


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to develop and test structured programming instructions for microcontroller devices at a fundamental level.
It includes microcontroller device code architecture and programming fundamentals, writing and testing specified instructions, and documenting development activities.In this unit, the term ‘micro’ refers to microcontrollers, however, competency in the unit can be achieved using microprocessors.


For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes & performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work-based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

  • applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including:
  • workplace procedures and practices
  • using of risk control measures
  • developing and testing structured programming instructions for microcontroller device
  • dealing with unplanned events/situations in accordance with workplace procedures in a manner that minimises risk to personnel and equipment
  • developing testing procedures/protocols
  • identifying problems and bugs/faults in program
  • rectifying problems and bugs/faults in program in accordance with workplace procedures
  • using all key features of an appropriate assembler language
  • writing and presenting work reports to relevant industry standards and protocols.

Required reading

The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the VU Polytechnic and/or via the Victoria University Polytechnic e-Learning system.
