Knowledge and skills acquired

Using lectures and individual work, student acquires basic knowledge in the field of digital integrated circuits and systems area, reasons of appearance, historical development, technological characteristics and production specifications. Logic functions, logic circuits, integrated logic circuits and simple applications in digital equipment and digital computers are presented. Student learns to recognize specific digital electronic problems and solving methods by using requirements specification in digital circuits and systems design. The skills in applying modern software tools for drawing logic diagrams, simulation and verification of logic circuits and systems are obtained. Design methods for logic circuits and structures by using integrated logic circuits, programmable logic circuits and microprocessor systems. Tools and instruments for development and diagnostic as logic probes, digital oscilloscopes, PAL and GAL programming tools, logic analysers, software tools for digital design (like MicroSim, OrCAD, Cadence etc).

Teaching methods

- Lectures using multimedia presentations-Individual learning using CD ROM
- E-learning using multimedia programmes like WebCT
- Reading written papers-Exercises with solved problems
- Individual problems solving and team work
- Laboratory practice on ready-made models and construction of own simple circuits and devices.

Student assessment

- Solving simple individual problems and encouraging team work on more complex problems
- On-line testing using e-learning tools like WebCT with questions data base
- Assessment of work in laboratory and estimation of design, construction, testing and presentation of own simple circuits and devices
- Oral examination with students for the purpose of defining the final grade
