Course objectives
The main aim of this course is to understand and master basic theoretical knowledge and practical virtuosity necessary for description and design of the digital systems. The lessons specialises in particular into the following topics:
- fundamentals of the logical algebra and logical function.
- design of the simple combination circuits.
- design of the elemental sequential circuits.
Learning outcomes
The student understands the fundaments of logic algebra, combination circuit design, sequential circuit design.
  • Theory of the encoding and data representation
  • Logic algebra and optimization of logical terms.
  • Implementation arithmetic and logical operations into digital systems.
  • Realization and principles of digital circuits.
  • Optimization of digital circuits structure and operation.
  • Fundamental logic circuits and digital computer modules
  • The methodology of combinational and sequential circuits design.
  • Basic operational units of digital systems

Teaching methods
Lectures that correspond to the intended aims of tuition.
Assessment methods
The final examination consists of 2 parts:
1) evaluation during the semester of assigned tasks and written tests or final written test on the topic - logical algebra, digital circuit design, and digital circuit connection analysis,
2) in the case of the choice of the final written test follow oral examination on the topic - methods of digital circuit design.
