The main target of this course is to provide the student with a global view about the majority of elements used as parts of Digital Electronic Systems. These include the different means for the Digital System to interact with the external world. With this knowledge, the student will be able to design and develop high performance Electronic Systems that will be used in whatever sector requested: Industrial Electronics, Consumer Electronics or Automatic Systems (such as robots).
Among the different interaction means that will be studied, there will be those based wired and wireless connections, plus those showing visual information.
The course will also teach the main concepts about advance architectures, such as DSPs, ASICs, System on Chip (SoC) or Embedded Systems. Furthermore, the different possibilities in continuing a R&D carreer in the field of Electronics Systems will be shown.
In order to take this course, there is no need to also take Microprocessors course. However, the joint study of Microprocessors, plus this subject, and the one called Digital Electronic Systems, will provide the student with high level capabilities for being employed in the different sectors requiring experts in the Electronics System Design, independently of the final application of the work to be done.
