Course objectives
The main aim of this course is to understand and master fundamental theoretical knowledge and practical virtuosity necessary for description and for design digital systems. The lessons are specialized in particular into the following topics:
- logical algebra and function;
- design of the combination circuits;
- design of the sequential circuits;
- structural components and cores of the digital systems.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- analyze the advanced digital system using logical algebra;
- design kernel for digital systems.
  • Encoding and data representation
  • Logic algebra and optimization of the logical terms
  • Implementation arithmetical and logical operations into computer machines
  • Basic structural components of the digital systems
  • Theoretical tools for design of the combination circuits
  • Design of the combinational circuits
  • Theoretical tools for design of the sequential circuits
  • Design of the sequential circuits
  • Basic operational units of the digital systems
  • Operational principle and design of the basic digital systems units
  • Hazards of the digital systems
  • Digital systems cores
  • Design systems and simulation of the digital systems

Teaching methods
Lectures that correspond to intended aims of tuition.
Assessment methods
Final examination consists of 3 parts:
1) defense of the project - implementation of the design from laboratory lessons and discussion about protocol,
2) written test - logical algebra, design of the digital circuits and analysis of the digital circuits,
3) oral exam - theoretical tools for design of the digital circuits.
