Knowledge and skills acquired

In classes and by carrying out individual work, students acquire the basic knowledge in the field of digital integrated circuits and systems area, reasons of appearance, historical development, technological characteristics and production specifications. They learn about logic functions, logic circuits, integrated logic circuits and simple applications in digital equipment and digital computers. Students learn how to recognise specific digital electronic problems and solving methods by using requirements specification in digital circuits and systems design. They acquire skills in applying modern software tools for drawing logic diagrams, simulation and verification of logic circuits and systems. Students learn about 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 and 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 such as WebCT, reading papers, problem solving exercises, individual problem solving and team work and design to get reliability increased and fault tolerance, laboratory practice to get experience in designing simple circuits and devices.

Student requirements

Defined by the Student evaluation criteria of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek and paragraph 1.9

Monitoring of students

Defined by the Student evaluation criteria of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek and paragraph 1.9

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 laboratory work as well as design, construction, testing and presentation of own simple circuits and devices. Oral exam with students for the purpose of awarding the final grade.

ECTS credits

An ECTS credit value has been added according to calculation of time required for studying and successful course completion.

Examination methods

Knowledge assessment during the semester, individual problem solving and oral 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

1. define and explain the notion of digital electronics.

2. Distinguish the functions of logic circuits.

3. Apply the appropriate logic circuits and calculate their parameters.

4. Connect logical circuits to a more complex system and analyse the work

5. Design a digital system based on default requirements in VHDL

6. Measure parameters and explain the operation of a digital system

7. Prepare and demonstrate the functionality of the designed digital system
