No late registration is under any circumstance accepted, Students must carry a valid identification document (passport, ID card, driving licence etc.) Multiple applications in different dates are strictly forbidden and strongly sanctioned. Exams applications with no show without previous notifications will be sanctioned. A negative result of the exam will be in any case recorded and prevents students from applying for two months. A positive result cannot be refused and will be in any case recorded.

Presentation5 A students list on the web site https://www.dsa.unibo.it/ has been created for communications. It can be accessed using the Alma address and the Alma password.https://www.dsa.unibo.it/ List name = Digital-systems Students MUST every day read the s which are the only communication way for contacting them. Changes of dates or times of the exams are communicated through and therefore possible misunderstandings are only responsibility of the students.

Using the same credentials at the same address students can attend the lectures on any device provided with Adobe Flash Player (i.e. for iPad the Photon browser) Through the system console they can ask questions: the professor can answer either in voice or through the console Obviously channel bandwith is of the foremost importance (Alma WiFi is not enough) Recorded lectures are available on ASF and MP4 files can viewed with H264 codec. VLAN is a good Windows display program which can be downloaded at address On the same site students can find a wealth of exercises with solutions and Xilinx projects. They are in italian because it would have been impossible to provide their translations in english owing to time constraints
