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.
