DIVISION: | PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING | ||
DEPARTMENT: | ELECTRICAL & COMPUTER ENGINEERING | ||
GENERAL EDUCATION: | This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement. | ||
CATALOG DESCRIPTION: | Theory, design, and implementation of combinational and sequential logic. Laboratory exercises are included. | ||
DESCRIPTION: | 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 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. A Student presentation is required. Laboratory exercises are included. |
