Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

After graduation of the subject, students will know the function of the logic circuits, they can define the demands on microcomuter control systems, they can explain the function of different parts of microcomuter control systems and they can apply obtained knowledge at the practical design of the microcomputer system.

Teaching methods



The subject is focused on the basic understanding of logic circuits function, microprocessors and their applications in the area of electrotechnics.. The content of this subject is based on knowledge of the electric circuits theory, basics of theoretical electrotechnics and electronics. The obtained knowledge creates the part of general knowledge of bachelor, especially if he is focused on application of electronics and control technique.
