UPC EETAC Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications Systems and in Network Engineering EEL

 

CSD intended learning outcomes and organisation

Home


Our main learning objective is that upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

Systematically specify, plan, develop, simulate, report, prototype and verify simple digital circuits and systems, using state-of-the-art digital programmable devices and microcontrollers, CAD/EDA software tools and laboratory equipment, by means of cross-curricular competences and PBL methodology.

- The course workload is 150 hours or 6 ECTS. This is a short presentation rec. of our course organisation and syllabus. The way to attend CSD is simple: let us design a project every week by means of this planning schedule and PBL techniques.

- This is an archive of CSD exams, problems, questions and assessment scheme. 

- These are video recordings to clarify specific topics, concepts and proceeding when using EDA tools and designing circuits.

-  This is the syllabus of CSD as a book table of content. Main topics in books on fundamentals of digital circuits and systems are covered in our course.

- You are encouraged to participate actively in class or by email,  post questions and answers in our Atenea blogs and help as much as possible your mates working in cooperation as in real-world engineering companies.

- This is the commitment to academic integrity at the UPC.

 

- EDA software resources:

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3
PROTEUS VSM, Notepad++, minilog.exe
VHDL C language
EDA tools for CPLD/FPGA synthesis and simulation: Intel Quartus Prime / ModelSim Starter  or Xilinx ISE-Vivado/ISim or Lattice Semiconductor ispLEVER Classic - Diamond / ActiveHDL.  EDA tools for microcontrollers: Microchip (PIC18F/16F/Atmega) MPLABX / XC8

NOTE: CSD software can be download to your portable or home computer. Ask us for Proteus Cloud Licence and use version 8.12 and upgrades.  

- Web page  (Canon Internet Gateway ) from where you can print documents using EETAC printer-scanner machines.

- Optionally, you can show and archive your projects and reflections by means of constructing your ePortfolio. This device allows discussion on what you have learnt in this 6 ECTS university course. These materials will be useful for you in other subjects in telecommunications or even in your final bachelor thesis.
