Objectives
The course aims to give the student advaced knowledge about the design of integrated digital systems, by giving the analysis methods for the dimensioning of the digital signal processing components, as well as knowledge of the hw/sw tools for system design on ASIC and FPGA:
• knowledge and understanding
The students will acquire the necessary knowledge to be able to analyze the performance of functional blocks for the signal processing and to give a unitary view of the whole hw architecture of a digital electronic system. Students will acquire further knowledge of cad tools for the computer assisted, design and testing of integrated circuits.
• knowledge and applied understanding
The student will be able to analyze, dimensioning and implementing circuits of high complexity, which operations require the knowledge of digital and mixed signal electronic
• making judgments
The student will be able to choose the better methods for the analysis and synthesis of digital systems of high complexity, as well as judge the influence of the different design parameters on their performance
• communication skills
The technical contents of the course necessarily require that the students acquire a technical language for a good written and oral presentation. Since the laboratory work requires a group organization of students, they will gain experience of teamwork and practice in it to communicate with a specific technical language.
• ability to learn
Given the need, pursued by the course, that the students acquire the ability to analyze the effects of increasing integration of devices on the circuit performances, they will have awareness of the continuing evolution of electronics and the need for a continuous independent learning.
Prerequisites
In order to achieve the best results, students must know in advance:
• solid-state device physics and the models that describe their behavior in digital circuits;
• fundamentals of digital and analog electronic;
• fundamentals of logic networks.

Teaching Methods
The course includes class and laboratory lessons for 40h and 10h respectively. Laboratory activities involve the students for the last 40h, duting which they develop digital design systems by using Xilinx environment and Digilent CMOD board, equipped with FPGA Xilinx Artix 7. Projects are developed in team to enforce the workgroup capabilities of the students.
Verification of learning
THE LEARNING LEVEL ARE VERIFIED BY THE PRESENTATION OF A PROJECT DEVELOPED BY USING THE HW/SW TOLS LEARNED DURING THE LESSONS AND FINAL TASK, ABOUT THE CIRCUIT TOPOLOGIES AND OPERATIONS STUDIED DURING THE LESSON. COMPLETENESS, CORRECTNESS AND CLEARNESS OF THE PRESENTATION WILL BE EVALUATED AS QUALITY PARAMETER OF THE PROJECT THAT CONTRIBUTE TO THE FINAL GRADE.
