About Course
This Digital Systems course gives you a complete insight into the modern design of digital systems fundamentals from an eminently practical point of view. Unlike other more “classic” digital circuits courses, our interest focuses more on the system than on the electronics that support it. This approach will allow us to lay the foundation for the design of complex digital systems.
You will learn a set of design methodologies and will use a set of (educationaloriented) computeraideddesign tools (CAD) that will allow you not only to design small and mediumsize circuits but also to access higherlevel courses covering so exciting topics as applicationspecific integrated circuits (ASICs) design or computer architecture, to give just two examples.
Course topics are complemented with the design of a simple processor, introduced as a transversal example of a complex digital system. This example will let you understand and feel comfortable with some fundamental computer architecture terms as the instruction set, microprogram, and microinstructions.
