Digital Circuits (EE202-17) - recommendated to be taken in Fall semester of 2nd year
The main task of this course is to enable students to master the basic concepts, principles, analysis and design methods of digital logic circuits and systems through various teaching links and teaching means; to train students' basic skills in digital logic circuit and system; to train students' basic ability to solve digital logic circuit analysis and design problems, and to have the basic knowledge of digital system design. It will lay a foundation for the future engineering and technical work, scientific research and the exploration of new technical fields in the field of electronic science and technology.
Digital Signal Processing (EE323) - recommended to be taken in Fall semester of the 3rd year
This course introduces fundamental principles and concepts in the area of digital signal processing, including:
1. the representation of discrete time signal and system in the time domain and transformed domain. The transformed domains mainly include discrete-time Fourier transform, discrete Fourier transform, and z-transform.
2. Linear and time-invariant (LTI) System
3. Digital filters (FIR filters and IIR filters) structures and their designs,
4. Fast Fourier transform and its implementation.
Digital Image Processing (EE326) - recommended to be taken in Spring semester of 2nd or 3rd year.
This course develops an overview of the field of image processing, introduces the fundamental spatial domain and frequency domain image processing techniques and their implements, image enhancement, image restoration, processing of color images, and image segmentation.
Digital System Design (EE332) - recommended to be taken in Spring semester of 2nd or 3rd year
The objective of this course is to introduce a hardware description language (HDL) for the specification, simulation, synthesis and implementation of digital logic systems. The students will have design practice sessions designing and implementing digital logic systems with commercial electronic design automation (EDA) tools.
