- Hierarchical design (component level design).
- Dynamic/static and volatile/non-volatile memory.
- High-level code optimizing.
- Student can design a combinational gate network from a description/specification.
- Knows simple arithmetic operations with binary numbers and can identify the corresponding digital components.
- Can explain the functionality and limitations of basic computer arithmetic.
- Can explain how the CPU and memory operate together to execute a program.
- Can implement and test simple (high level) hardware-based programs utilizing software development and debugger tools.
