Unformatted text preview: ECEN 3100 Digital Logic Prof. I.R. Jones Objective: This laboratory will introduce combinational logic design using NAND gates from two perspectives- analysis and modification of an existing circuit; and circuit design from a problem description. Discussion: AND, OR, and INVERTER gates are the basic logic operators. All logic circuits can be implemented using only these devices. A logic device is universal or logically/functionally complete, if the device can be used in place of an AND, OR, or INVERTER gate. A NAND gate is such a device (the proof of this is left to the reader). One reason for using only NAND gates in a circuit is that the chip count (number of ICs used) in a circuit can be reduced (see Part-I of the pre- lab). The synthesis of a logic circuit generally results in an SOP expression of the form, F = (A. B) + (C·D). The implementation of this expression would require two AND gates and one OR gate. To implement this circuit using only NAND gates, a technique called "bubble matching" orOR gate....
