CLASS CODE: COMPE 224 CREDITS:  3
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.
TOPICS: Number systems, truth tables, Boolean algebra, and Karnaugh maps. Combinational logic circuits: SSI devices (AND, OR, NAND, NOR, XOR gates), and MSI devices (MUX, DX, ALU), logic devices. Sequential logic circuits: flip-flops, counters, shift registers, and state machines. Also covers basic circuit construction skills.
OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this course students will be able to:
1. Design, minimize, and analyze combinational logic circuits;
2. Design, minimize, and analyze sequential logic circuits (including simple state machines);
3. Construct simple prototype digital circuits;
4. Use CAE software to simulate digital circuits;
5. Make technical presentations.
REQUIREMENTS: Purchase of experiment board (about $45). Students must design and build a project that uses sequential logic and a programmable logic device. A student presentation is required.
