This course extends the student’s skill with digital hardware and covers more advanced topics including advanced digital design techniques. They examine various design methodologies such as state machine design and hardware description languages. Applications focus on the design of computer hardware subsystems such as arithmetic logic units and memory. Labs illustrate the various methods for design entry such as schematic entry and VHDL, simulation, and testing. Designs are implemented using commercial PLDs.
