Department of Digital Design
Synopsis:

Students understand basic digital computer units and their structures, functions, and hardware implementation: ALU, control unit, memory system, inputs, outputs, data storage and transfer. In the labs, students gain practical experience with the design and implementation of the logic of a simple processor using modern digital design tools. The subject teaches basic knowledge of digital computer construction principles, how a computer performs its operations, what is machine code, and what are its connections to higher programming languages.

Requirements:

Basic knowledge of physical principles of digital circuits (transistors as switches, implementation of registers, data storage principles) and fundamentals of discrete mathematics (number representation systems, Boolean algebra).

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Computer organization, units and their interfaces.

2. Logic functions, combinatorial components, gate-level design.

3. Structure of sequential components, description and implementation. Mealy and Moore type of implementation.

4. Typical combinatorial and sequential components of a computer.

5. Data, storage and processing.

6. Representation of negative numbers, fix-point and floating point numbers.

7. Implementation of arithmetic operations.

8. Instruction set architecture and machine code.

9. Memory structures and design principles.

10. Computer memory system.

11. Input-output components, buses and communication.

12. Procesor architecture, control units.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Adders, gates, implementation using EDA tools in design kit.

2. Bolean algebra, minimisation.

3 Typical combination circuits, convertors, arithmetic circuits.

4. Combinatorial components design (gate level).

5. Implementation of simple sequential components.

6. Implementation of sequential components.

7. AVR processor, demo.

8. AVR implementation of arithmetic functions.
