Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • Combinatory networks
  • Sequence networks
  • The design language VHDL
  • Programmable circuits
  • Semiconductor memories
  • Digital to analog and analog to digital converters

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give the students good knowledge of digital subsystems and systematic methods for analysing and designing communications systems. The aim is also to give basic knowledge of how to describe digital systems in a high level design language.

After completing this course students are to :

  • be able to analyse and design combinatory systems
  • be able to analyse and design sequential systems
  • be able to describe the behaviour of digital components in a high level design language
  • be able to implement such descriptions in programmable circuits
  • be trained to couple and test digital circuits
  • be able to read and understand information concerning digital electronics from various sources of information

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 4,5 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

Passed written exam (TEN1; 3 cr.) credit rate A-F
Passed lab work (LAB1; 4,5 cr.) credit rate A-F
In total based on the parts as above, credit rate A-F

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
