Summary

The course does not presuppose a special digital computer prior knowledge, provide the basic knowledge of electrical engineering and digital circuits. In this course students learn the technologies of manufacturing digital circuits. There are also provided basic information on how to conduct communication with peripheral equipment. It also paid attention to microprocessor technology, particularly processor companies Intel, Atmel and PIC. Students become familiar with the principles of memory, bus, and interface adapters. In addition, students will learn the extent appropriate, with parallel architectures and system architectures of modern computers.
