Subject description


  • Introductory course: "Computer science"
  • A positive lab. course grade is a prerequisite to any type of written examination.

Content (Syllabus outline):

Logic signals and gates with technological designs),Logic functions: (their simplification and realization),Analysis and structures of combinatorial circuits (encoder, decoder, multiplexer, demultiplexer, comparator, adder, arithmetic logic unit, multiplier),Programmable circuits: (elements and realization of logic functions using programmable circuits).Synchronous circuits: (Implementation of latches and flip−flops. Characteristic equations and state transition diagrams.)
Analysis and design of synchronous sequential circuits (counter, register).Finite state machines,
model of synchronous machine (Mealy, Moore).

Objectives and competences:
