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.

DESCRIPTION: Theory, design, and implementation of combinational and sequential logic. Laboratory exercises are included.
TAUGHT: Fall, Winter
CONTENT AND 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.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: 1. Design and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data;
2. Design, minimize, and analyze combinational logic circuits;
3. Design, minimize, and analyze sequential logic circuits (including simple state machines);
4. Construct simple prototype digital circuits;
5. Use CAE software to simulate digital circuits;
6. Make technical presentations.
7. Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.
8. Communicate effectively.
9. Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
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.
