2. Pre-Requisites

Knowledge of the principles of Electric Circuit Analysis.

Knowledge of the foundations of Electronics.

To be familiar with the use of computers and software packages applied to engineering.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The goal of the degree in Industrial Electronics and Control Engineering is to educate students that will become electronic engineers. Students are trained to perform tasks related to the design, development and maintenance of products manufactured by the electronic industry.

The main objective of Electrónica Digital I is to provide students with core knowledge regarding both theoretical and practical aspects of the analysis and the design of digital electronic circuits.

By the end of the term students taking this course should be able to:

  • Identify and understand up-to-date underlying technologies on which the microfabrication of digital circuits is based.
  • Understand how switching devices operate in a digital circuit, especially with CMOS logic.
  • Apply a range of methods and techniques intended to simplify logic expressions.
  • Solve design problems using the typical building blocks involved in digital logic design.

Ideally, students taking Electrónica Digital I should have previously attended and passed subjects in, at least, electric network theory and fundamentals of analog electronics. The fundamentals of digital logic taught in Electrónica Digital I are an essential starting point to study more advanced topics in this area of expertise, specifically in programmable digital logic and computer architecture, subjects which are also studied in the degree.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 60.00% 60.00% The written exam will consist of a number of questions and problems to be solved.
Laboratory sessions 25.00% 25.00% Drafting of a lab report describing the work carried out in the laboratory.
Projects 15.00% 15.00% Individual report.
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 4 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 12.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    Students will score a final mark that will result from the assessment of the three contributions listed in the evaluation criteria and their corresponding weights. The three parts must be passed.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Students will score a final mark that will result from the assessment of the following three contributions:
    -Written test (60%)
    -Implementation of at least one case study in the laboratory (25%)
    -Delivery of an individual report (15%)

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The marks corresponding to those parts that were passed in the final exam will be saved for the resit exam.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same criteria as for the final exam
