Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To familiarize students with the internal structure of electronic devices, especially with the functions and properties of the digital circuits. Students should also understand the principles of digital device communication with the environment, discrete input / output solutions and how to use storage media to store data. Students should at the same time not forgetting the problems of implementation, reliability and EMC.

Summary

The course introduces students to the standard digital circuits and devices for digital signal processing in electronic equipment. The basis is an analysis of basic types of combinational and sequential logic circuits, basic ways of describing their function and their realization. Dismissed are methods of data transfer, processing and storage. The I/O resources are explained separately.
