Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to: understand main concepts of digital system design (combinational and sequential circuits); know the realization of basic design (adders, counters, state automata); create and simulate simple design.
  • Fundamentals of digital systems: description of a logic circuit, design methods.
  • Basic entities: primitives (gates), combinatorial circuits, sequential circuits.
  • Practical exercises with tools Hades and Quartus.
  • Short introduction into HDL, Verilog.
