Course objectives
The main objectives of the seminar are to verify the knowledge acquired during the Digital computer architecture course. The students will learn about the structure and the design of systems for selected microcomputers or FPGA, they will learn to program them and at the end of the semester, they will create their own project. The lessons will be held in the EmLab - A415.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
practically design a digital system;
program using a language assembler and C designed digital system;
to practically assemble and integrate a digital system.
