The objective of the course is to describe structured methods for construction of digital systems, based on the concept of state transition graphs. The state transition graph is a powerful tool when building a model of the system. This model can then be realised by a sequential machine, which is a realisation with logic circuits and delay elements. It is central to the course to understand the concept of state transition graphs and how different methods can be applied in the realisation chain so the resulting circuit has few gates, which leads to a hardware with small chip area.
