Course description

This differential course should expand the knowledge of students who graduated from professional study programmes or other branches, and which will be required in the graduate study programme. Microprocessors and embedded computers. Application of embedded computers in the automotive industry, traffic (train) management and information. Hierarchical architecture of process computer systems. Microprocessor modes. Microcontrollers. Examples of industrial applications of microprocessors with metering converters. Modern microprocessors. Multi-core processors. Programmable circuits. FPGA and applications. VHDL language for the design of digital and computer systems. Examples of basic circuit programming and work with FPGA (Spartan and E2LP) development systems.

Knowledge and skills acquired

In classes and by carrying out individual work, students acquire knowledge in the field of computer architecture based on a microprocessor and microcontroller and the basics of embedded computers. They learn the architecture of modern and multi-faceted computers, promote the independent work and application of the VHDL programming language for the design of digital and computer systems using the development environment and FPGA-based systems as Spartan and E2LP platforms.

Teaching methods

Lectures using multimedia presentations, self-studying using Loomen materials, assignments and their presentation, laboratory exercises with demonstration of problem solving, individual and teamwork problem solving, laboratory exercises on FPGA-based development systems and testing of their own circuits and smaller subsystems.

Examination methods

Seminar paper and a written exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. explain the computer system and microprocessor architecture

2. apply programming tools and environments for programme development

3. explain the advanced microprocessor architecture

4. test and evaluate a designed computer system

5. design a computer based system based on VHDL requirements
