General introduction to simulation: fundamental ideas and principles of simulation systems, synchronous and asynchronous simulation. Simulation system VHDL and its use for simulation of digital circuits: data types, entities, architectures, sequential environment (processes, functions, procedures), signals and their attributes, resolution function, parallel environment (data-flow description, blocks, structural description), configuration of structural models. Students who completed course 36SIM cannot enroll.
