Dear intending student
We are glad to see you on the page of the Department of Design of Electronic
Digital Equipment (DEDEC)!
Do you know what “design” is? In a strict sense, this word means “a way in which
something is made” e.g. computing device, but in a broad one, it implies planning,
modeling, programming, debugging and production performed altogether. Exactly
the broad meaning of the term is assumed in the teaching of our students.
What does our department can offer for you and what will you be able to do after
We will help you to form a modern scientific worldview, technical erudition, logical
thinking, and gain your skills.
We will teach you how to design information and computer equipment based on
"system-on- chip" (SoCs), CISC and RISC microprocessors and microcontrollers
(namely x86, ARM and MIPS based), digital signal processors (DSP) and FPGAs,
which lay in the heart of all modern electronic systems, as well as the so-called
We will teach you how to program in Matlab, C/C++, Assembler, hardware
description languages, specifically Verilog and VHDL, freely develop web-pages
using PHP, MySQL, HTML, and CSS. You will also learn how to use special
integrated design environments (IDEs) such as Matlab/Simulink, OrCAD, Altium
Designer, Quartus II, Arduino-IDE and AVR Studio, TI Code Composer Studio, IAR
Workbench, as well as LabVIEW the systems engineering software for applications
that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data
You will pass all the way on the creation of electronic devices from circuit and
algorithms design, programming, integration to a particular implementation and
production. To help you with this, our department has a number of training centers,
particularly: Intel FPGA (formerly ALTERA) Ukrainian official training center of FPGA
design, TEXAS INSTRUMENTS educational laboratory, education and research
center of lean manufacturing “Lean Centre”. We also have six educational
laboratories: the laboratory of digital design, laboratories of microprocessor and
physics fundamentals of microelectronics, information technology laboratory,
laboratory of analog- and digital electronics and open laboratory of electronics
In our department, you will have the opportunity to use powerful laboratory
facilities such as DE2, DE1-SoC and DE5 evaluation modules from Altera (now Intel
FPGA). You will able to utilize development boards from Texas Instruments,
specifically BeagleBoard-xM, BeagleBone Black based on ARM Cortex-A8,
development boards based on C28x, C55x, C64x DSP cores, boards based on
MSP430 microcontroller and analog system lab kit ASLK-PRO. We also have a lot of
other development equipment and starter kits such as C51, AVR by Atmel, Arduino,
STM32 by STMicroelectronics, Pine 64 based on ARM Cortex-A53, portable solution
for wireless technologies based on Tmote Sky ZigBee-modules, Galileo and Edison
microcomputers by Intel.
We will teach you to design, deploy and administrate computer networks. You will
become familiar with Ethernet, Wi-Fi, DSL and ZigBee technologies, which makes
you able to design any network, from a small home to large corporate one. Our
network equipment by Cisco Systems will help you in this.
You will achieve solid, qualitative higher education, which helps you always be
confident in the volatile world of modern information and electronics technologies.
If you are self-confident, ready to study hard, and gain your knowledge in the field
of modern electronic and telecommunication technologies, we will be glad to see
you among the student of our department.
Head of DEDEC department,
Prof., Dr.Sc. Oleksandr Lysenko
