|Subject Overview:|| |
This course serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of digital system design and to the technical language used in this field. This includes Boolean algebra; number systems and digital arithmetic; the analysis and design of combinational logic systems with examples ranging from designs based on logic gates to designs involving decoders and multiplexers to achieve target functionality; the use of Karnaugh maps for combinational logic simplification; an introduction to bit storage units (latches and flip-flops); the analysis and design of synchronous (ie. clocked) sequential logic systems with examples ranging from registers and counters to generic finite state machine design; and a brief introduction to memory units, microprocessor systems and configurable logic devices (PLDs).
|Assessment:||Formally supervised written examination 3 hours 65% (end of semester); Written class test 1 hour 10% (mid-semester); written assignments 10% (eight assignments throughout semester); laboratory reports 10% (four 3-hour laboratory classes throughout the semester); tutorial attendance 5% (ten 2-hour tutorials throughout the semester).|
