Petrick covering method. Networks with NOT, AND, OR, NAND, and NOR elements. TANT and TONT networks. Basic arithmetic blocks. MSI blocks: MX, DC/DMX, ROM, GA, PAL, PLA. Finite state machines: Mealy machine, Moore machine. Flipflops and latches: D, T, RS, R, S, JK. Simple synchronized sequential networks: registers, counters. Simple fixed and microprogrammed control units. Simple asynchronous sequential networks.  Learning outcomes and competences: 

  An abitity to do a behaviour analysis, and to design simple digital equipments.  Syllabus of lectures:

 Controlled instruction: 

  International students: Test, midterm exam, active participation on laboratory practice (supported by the homework), and final exam are monitored education parts. Test, midterm exam and laboratory practice (supported by the homework) are without alternative. Points for homework may be obtained at the last laboratory class after successful modelling of all laboratory statements. Final exam has one additional alternative.  Progress assessment: 

  International students: Test "15 points", midterm exam "25 points", homework and its evaluation in laboratory "5 points", final exam "55 points".  Exam prerequisites: 

  Requirements for class accreditation are not defined.
