Students are able to
CO1: model, simulate, verify, and synthesize with hardware description languages.
CO2: understand and use major syntactic elements of VHDL - entities, architectures, processes, functions, common concurrent statements, and common sequential statements
CO3: design digital logic circuits in different types of modeling
CO4: demonstrate timing and resource usage associated with modeling approach. CO5: use computer-aided design tools for design of complex digital logic circuits
