Syllabus

Common characteristics of the Integrated Course unit

Prerequisites: Mathematical analysis 1, Electrical science, Signals and systems.
Target skills and knowledge: Principles of semiconductor devices operation; structural and functional characteristics of main components (diodes, bipolar transistors, field effect transistors). Knowledge of main linear and non-linear electronic circuits for signal amplifiers.

Learning of main techniques for the analysis and synthesis of combinational and sequential logic circuits (algebraic, graphical and automatic techniques). Fundamental knowledge of CMOS technology and of the digital design in complementary CMOS logic.

Analysis and synthesis of electronic circuits.
Examination methods: Written and oral examinations for each module.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation will be based on the learning verification of theoretical concepts and on the analysis and design of electronic circuits.

Specific characteristics of the Module

Course unit contents: 1) Basics of binary arithmetic: conversion methods, fundamental operators, codes (Gray, BCD, ASCII). Boolean algebra: truth tables, fundamental logic functions (AND, NAND, OR, NOR, XOR, XNOR), consensus and De Morgan theorems.
2) Design of combinational logic function using Karnaugh maps. Minimization methods. Examples of fundamental combinational functions: decoder, encoder, multiplexer, adders, comparators.
3) Basic sequential circuits (latches, flip-flops). Design of sequential logic circuits. Fundamental synchronous and asynchronous sequential systems (counters and shift registers). Programmable logic circuits (CPLD, FPGA).
4) CMOS technology fundamentals: logic levels; noise margins; static and dynamic power dissipation; propagation delay; complex logic gates.
5) Solid state memory technology: SRAM, DRAM and EEPROM.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures and exercises.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Classes are based on the adopted book.
The books "Circuiti integrati digitali" (J. Rabaey, A. Chandrakasan, B. Nikolic.) and "Microelettronica" (Jaeger, Blalock) are used only to support the lectures on CMOS technologies and circuit implementation.
