The Microcomputer Systems Laboratory belongs to the Automation & Electronic Systems Sector of the Electrical Engineering Department of TEI of Western Greece. Its main objective is to provide a sufficient foundation and educate students in microprocessors, microcomputers, microcontrollers and networked microcontrollers with fieldbuses. Μοre...

Laboratory exercise platforms are based on 8085/8086/x86 microcomputer technology and LonWorks  - Neuron Chip 3150/20 fieldbus technology.

Furthermore final year student projects are being developed and implemented in many other platforms and technologies.
