2. Pre-Requisites

In order to take this course to the best advantage, the student must have acquired the knowledge derived from obtaining the skills related to the use and programming of computers, operating systems, databases and computer programs with application in engineering, as well as as with the fundamentals of electronics and the principles of circuit theory. The skills to analyze and design digital circuits acquired in the Digital Electronics I subject are also essential.

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

The objective of the Digital Electronics II subject is to provide students with the skills and tools that allow them to adequately face the design and programming of advanced digital systems, such as those based on microprocessors and microcontrollers, as well as to introduce themselves to digital design based on HDL languages. . The use of digital technologies, and in particular of microcontrollers and microprocessors, is common ground in the development of technological solutions for multiple problems of our daily lives and in the industrial and productive sphere. In this way, it is a subject in which the student will handle components and problems very close to those they will face in their professional career.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Mid-term tests 60.00% 0.00% Compulsory tests within the continuous assessment to facilitate passing the subject, where in each test a block of subject content is evaluated. Failure to do so causes the student to go to non-continuous mode.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 15.00% 15.00% Resolution of problems and proposed cases to be delivered on the date indicated within the continuous evaluation.
Laboratory sessions 25.00% 25.00% The laboratory practices must be delivered in the calendar established with the corresponding report.
Final test 0.00% 60.00% Assessment of the assimilation of concepts and procedures through the final test within the non-continuous assessment. It includes both the evaluation of the subject blocks of the continuous evaluation and the resolution of problems and cases in the same test.
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:
    It will correspond to the weighted average of the qualifications obtained in the partial tests, resolution of problems or cases and realization of laboratory
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    It will correspond to the weighted average of the qualifications obtained in the final test, resolution of problems or cases and realization of laboratory practices.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The evaluation criteria in the extraordinary call are the same as those used in the non-continuous evaluation of the ordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
No evaluation criteria have been introduced.
