Learning activities and methodology
- Lectures and problem classes: 2,4 ECTS. Intended to reach the specific competences of the course through theory dissertation and exercises resolution. Two ongoing evaluations of this part will be done. - Lab practices: 1,2 ECTS. Design and development of digital circuits using simulation tools with the aid of the professor - Project design and development, 2,4 ECTS. A project, developed individually or by small-sized groups, will be proposed at then end of the schedule and developed in the practice laboratory. Final assessment will be done on this part. Students will receive class notes and reference books in order to work and get in-depth knowledge on the course contents.
