Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Laboratory
  • Preparation for classes - 60 hours per semester
  • Preparation for credit - 10 hours per semester
  • Preparation for exam - 10 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
To learn to design and use programmable logic. Gate arrays and FPGAs are synthesized using CHDK and Verilog. Furthermore, students are acquainted with other computer architectures for implementation of digital filters, FFT, etc.
Orientation and knowledge in the following areas: 1) Basic characteristics and trends of computer architecture 2) Memory system hierarchy 3) Knowledge of VHDL or Verilog language 4) Synthesis and testing of FPGAs on specific development boards 5) Implementation of algorithms for solving automation and robotics goals. 6) DSP architecture and their use 7) Basic introduction to systems for FFT and others.
Prerequisites
