This subject develops a fundamental understanding of concepts used in the analysis and design of digital systems. Such systems lie at the heart of the information and communication technologies (ICT) that underpin modern society. This subject is one of four subjects that define the Electrical Systems Major in the Bachelor of Science and it is a core requirement for the Master of Engineering (Electrical and Mechatronics). It provides a foundation for various subsequent subjects, including ELEN30013 Electronic System Implementation, ELEN90066 Embedded System Design and ELEN90061 Communication Networks.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
1. Apply fundamental tools in the analysis of combinational and sequential logic systems, with an appreciation for the role and limitations of important digital abstractions;
Hurdle requirement: Students must pass the written exam to pass the subject.
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs)1 to 3 are assessed in the final written examination, the mid-semester test, submitted tutorial quizzes, and reports for three homework projects. ILO 4 is assessed as part of submitted laboratory exercises and in-class discussions.
