ELE340_1

Computer Design

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The course intention is to give the students insight into structured design of embedded system, ie. microprocessor based systems for measurement and control. The students are organized into project groups where project management and multidiscipline attitude is emphasized. Design exercises in the laboratory is a main part of the course, but selected topics will be lectured.

Learning outcome

Knowledge:
  • Know how a computer in general and an embedded system (ES) in particular can be designed.
  • Know how to design interfaces between ES and external devices.

Skills:
  • Be able to plan, report and control a small development project.
  • Be able to specify, analyze and design hardware and software implemented in a simple ES.
  • Be able to carry out drawing, lay-out, production, assembly and testing of a simple one- or two-layer printed circuit board.
  • Be able to implement signal processing and control algoritms in an ES.

General competence:
  • Fundamental understanding of structure, properties and potential of computer-based systems in general and with a main focus on ES.

Exam

Written exam and project report
Weight Duration Marks Aid
Written exam2/53 hoursA - FAll.1)
Project report3/5 A - F
Project report documents the project work. Project report in groups or individually. If the report is a group work, all participants in the group get the same grade.
1) All printed or hand written material is allowed. Calculators are allowed.

Coursework requirements

Theortical exercises, Laboratory exercises
Mandatory work demands (such as hand in assignments, lab- assignments, projects, etc) must be approved by subject teacher within the specified deadlines.
Completion of mandatory lab assignments are to be made at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. Absence due to illness or for other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times are made unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed upon.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the exam of the course.
