Learning objectives:
To develop knowledge gained in courses from the area of computer systems construction and demonstrate these principles in the field of external adapters design and embedded saystems design. To utilise this knowledge in the design and implementation of complex digital systems with comprehensive sequential behaviour. Students will be taught how to analyse the conditions in which the equipment under design will operate and on the basis of the analysis how to identify the trade-off between price, reliability and dynamic parameters. In laboratory tutorials students will study the structure and operation principles of external adapters and embedded systems components and their design in design system environment.
Description:
The themes of lectures deal with problems that must be solved by a designer during the design of components of a peripheral device adapter. Students will become acquainted with the principles of I/O bus system operation and the communication with adapters (communication with memory components, registers, interrupt request generation and its service, DMA request generation and its service). The principles of component design (synthesis) for peripheral operation control will be discussed. The laboratory tutorials will be directed towards the presentation of these principles on a computer structure and on the design of external adapter components and external adapter design in a design system environment.
Learning outcomes and competences:
Students will become acquainted with the principles of digital systems design with complex sequential behaviour reflecting the conditions in which the application will operate. They will learn how an implementation will be subdivided between software and hardware components. They will become acquainted with tools to support designer. They will learn how to design controllers of external adapters of basic peripheral devices and independently operating computer systems operating in real environment and communicating with a user or systems on higher level.
