Course objectives
Main aim of this courese is understand and master theoretical knowledges and practical virtuosity necessary for design high-performance digital systems. The lessons are specialized in particular into following topics:
application of the modern design components;
metodology of the modular systems;
connecting of the external devices.
  • Architecture of the digital systems;
  • structure of processors, CISC and RISC structures;
  • bus subsystem of the digital systems;
  • memory subsystem of the digital systems;
  • input and output subsystem the digital systems;
  • linkage hardware and operation system the digital systems;
  • external busses subsystem;
  • external memory subsystems;
  • programmable array;
  • Single-chip microcomputers;
  • design systems and simulations systems of digital systems.

Assessment methods
Final examination consist from 3 parts:
1) defence of the project - implementation of the design from laboratory lessons and discussion about protocol;
2) design of the circuit and verification of třhe design by laboratory tools;
3) oral exam - teoretical problems from list of the passed subjects.
