Study of the PB170 course does not require preliminary knowledge. To successfully complete this course, it is appropriate to study PV170-Konstrukce digitalnich systemu or PA174-Design of Digital Systems II in parallel.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.

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 circuits.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- formally describe a logic circuit composed of combinational or sequential circuits;
- design a simple digital system;
- simulate the behavior of digital circuits;
- basic design of logic circuits in HDL Verilog.
  • - 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.
