DEPARTMENT: ELECTRICAL & COMPUTER ENGINEERING
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Introduction to digital electronics. Number systems, truth tables, Boolean algebra, and Karnaugh maps. Combinational logic circuits: SSI devices (AND, OR, NAND, etc.), and MSI devices (MUX, DX, ALU, etc.). Sequential logic circuits: flip-flops, counters, and shift registers. State machine design and analysis. Also covers soldering and basic construction skills. Students must design and build a project that uses sequential logic and a programmable logic device. A Student presentation is required. Laboratory exercises are included.

Combinational logic circuits: SSI devices (AND, OR, NAND, etc.), and MSI devices (MUX, DX, ALU, etc.). Sequential logic circuits: flip-flops, counters, and shift registers. State machine design and analysis. Also covers basic construction skills such as soldering and wire-wrapping. Students must design and build a project that uses sequential logic and a programmable logic device. Computers are used to simulate logic circuits, program PLDs, and write reports. Laboratory exercises are included.
