Z4 KP1V + 3UT. Delbrück
KurzbeschreibungThis course will teach the basics of digital electronics, to give students hands-on experience with using COTS (Commodity Off The Shelf) components to build their own systems. It covers embedded microcontroller programming, logic design on FPGAs, PCB design and assembly.
LernzielThe basic aim is to remove the fear of starting and offer the students a first experience at many levels of design.
InhaltThe course consists of short lectures on theory and exercises using two different hardware platforms - a microcontroller board with Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface, and a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) board. In addition the course includes exercises in printed circuit board (PCB) design and PCB surface mount assembly. Students will complete a project of their own design which they can take with them after the course ends.

227-1043-00LNeuroinformatics - ColloquiaE-0 KP1KS.‑C. Liu, R. Hahnloser, V. Mante, K. A. Martin
KurzbeschreibungThe colloquium in Neuroinformatics is a series of lectures given by invited experts. The lecture topics reflect the current themes in neurobiology and neuromorphic engineering that are relevant for our Institute.
LernzielThe goal of these talks is to provide insight into recent research results. The talks are not meant for the general public, but really aimed at specialists in the field.
InhaltThe topics depend heavily on the invited speakers, and thus change from week to week. All topics concern neural computation and their implementation in biological or artificial systems.
