Course Aim
The course aims at developing competence to develop and analyze digital systems. The course should also give skills in using modern tools for digital design such as VHDL.

Logical gates, combinatorial circuits, decomposition and methods for logic minimization. Finite state machines and sequential circuits. State encoding and minimization. Topological sort for circuit analysis: cycles, critical path, and evaluation. Binary arithmetics and logic, and computational structures. Abstraction of a micro computer in terms its components; e.g. registers, memory, peripheral circuits.

Instruction consists of lectures, (seminars) and assignments. During the course, home assignments may occur, which will give bonus points at the written exam following directly after the course.

Written exam. Mandatory assignments.
