The subject is focused on basic knowledges about computer control systems used in electrotechnic engineering and energetics. Students works with hardware for data acquisition and data processing, software tools and application examples. There are presented elementary digital circuits, the representation of numbers and their processing in microcomputer and fundamental block of microprocessor and microcomputer. The single chip microcomputer, embedded application, industrial PC and design to industrial condition are presented.

Study targets:

Students orientatate in hardware for control and automation of technological technological processes; students try on practical excercises with logical control, with simple microprocessor and with example of SCADA system; students can orientate in influences of environment to industrial computers.

Course outlines:

1. The fundamentals, the microcomputer, its fundamental blocks and functions.
2. The number representation and processing, logic variables, characters.
3. The combinative circuits, design, description, examples.
4. The sequential circuits, design, description, simplification, examples.
5. The function of microcomputer parts, buses, memory.
6. Interruption system, peripheral circuits, input-output, communication.
