### Course content

Digital Circuits

• Number systems and codes
• Boolean algebra
• Karnaugh diagrams
• Logic gates and combinational logic
• Latches, flip-flops, counters and synthesis of synchronous sequential circuits
• Memory circuits

Programming

• Program structure
• Development tools
• Data types, variables
• Operators
• Control structures (loops and conditional statements)
• Functions and parameters
• Structures
• Arrays

### Learning outcome

After completing the course, the student should have a basic understanding of the topics of digital circuits, programming, and be able to develop a simple computer program.

Knowledge

The candidate must understand

• the basic topics in digital circuits
• the basic topics in programming and algorithm structure
• the progress of a programming project from problem formulation to ready-tested solutions, including an example of a development platform with relevant tools

Skills

The candidate should be able to

• convert between number systems
• simplify Boolean functions, either using Boolean algebra or Karnaugh diagram
• perform synthesis of sequence circuits
• formulate a problem so that it is programmable, and then carry out program development into a working solution
• create and process simple data structures

General competence

The candidate must

• be able to analyze a given basic problem, and set up a circuit and program a solution
• be able to communicate and discuss program solutions
• have a good platform for learning other programming languages ​​
• be able to combine elements from digital circuits, electronics (sensor circuits), and programming to construct a working system
• be able to reflect over ethical and sustainability questions related to the topics.

### Learning methods and activities

• Lectures
• Student active teaching (both at the individual level and as part of a group),
• Assignments (case-assignments, laboratory assignment).
• Supervision
• A number of assignments must be handed in digital circuits and programming.

There will be company presentations that focus on innovation/entrepreneurship, the engineer's role in society and give an insight into what awaits in working life after graduation.

### Further on evaluation

The final grade (letter grade: A-F) is based on two exams: an exam covering the digital circuits part of the curriculum and an exam covering the programming part . The final grade is calculated as an average of two grade, with the following weights: digital circuit exams (40%) and programming (60%).

Re-sit for the exams usually in August. For the re-sit exam the form of the exam might be changed to oral exam.

In the case of a re-take of any of the individual elements, the student is required to re-take the entire course.
