Students are acquainted with common computer interfaces and design of peripherals. Selected PC interfaces (USB, PCI, PCI Express, IEEE1394, ExpressCard), metallic and wireless networks (IEEE802.x standards) and industrial interfaces (EIA-485, EIA-232, CAN ) are explained in detail. Project-oriented laboratories are focused on design and implementation of selected communication interface.

Course outlines:

1. Basic PC interfaces (PS-2, IEEE 1248, VGA, DVI)
2. PCI, detailed standard and implementation description
3. PCI Express, brief standard and implementation description
4. USB, detailed standard and implementation description
