This course aims to provide students with a knowledge of problem solving with digital systems (computer systems and digital circuits). The basic building blocks of combinational and sequential circuits are introduced to develop circuit solutions to problems and to understand and implement the design and operation of hardware models of digital and computer systems. HDLs will be used to describe circuits and state of the art computer aided design tools will be used to design complex systems.
