Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

The digital electronic systems (DES) may be defined as the circuits that process information coded in a digital format. Their application domains are really large and nowadays one can find a DES module in every electronic system. There are different ways to process information and numerous alternatives for implementing DES, the election is not a trivial issue and it depends on the application and user requirements. The Digital Electronic Systems subject will provide students the assimilation of methods and strategies for analyzing and designing microcontroller based systems. The course consists of different activities to be carried out as theory, problem solving practice and computer practice classes. In all activities it will be necessary both individual work and group work for successful achievement of the objectives of the course. The activities related to theory and problem solving practice classes will be taught in the theory lecture room, and computer practice classes will be taught in one of the laboratories of Polytechnic University College. This course is related to Basic Electronics, Digital Electronics and collaterally to Analogue Electronics.
