General Prerequisites
1. Fundamentals of secondary school Physics. 2. Basic fundamentals of Electricity and Electronics gained from secondary school. 3. Fundamentals of secondary school Informatics.
Learning Outcomes
1. The understanding of the basic and advanced notions, functions, circuits, units and sys-tems, as they have been described in the "Course Content (Syllabus)" section. 2. The design of typical logic circuits known from the everyday life and the industry, as e.g., digital wrist-watch, alarm-clock radio, the client que priority managing circuit, access con-trol and door entry systems with entry code and alarm, rotation control in electrical machi-nes, addition, multiplication and division circuits for arithmetic calculators, error correcting transmission for satellite and mobile telephony data under thermal and electromagnetic industrial noise.
