(a) Write the output expression for ﬁgure 1. ( 2 Marks)
(b) simplify the output expression with boolean theorems. ( 3 Marks ) A:(a)ZE+ABC+AE+ABE=F
(b)F=Z+E+ABC+Z+C+AB'C“
As C+E=I 3F=i F=0 QUESTION 5
A NC lathe employsa system for monitoring the lathes safety by monitoring sliding door, oil coolent
and rotation status. These operate as follows: ”
Door = 1 when sliding door is open.
Oil = 1 when oil is present.
Rotation Status = 1 when work piece is rotating
Figure 2 shows the logic circuit that controls a warning light for certain combinations of safety
conditions. Assume that a HIGH at output W activates the warning light.
(a) Determine what conditions will give a warning to the operator. ( 3 Marks )
(b) Change the circuit to one using all NAND gates. ( 2 Marks ) QUESTION 6
An edgetriggered D ﬂipﬂop and a T ﬂipﬂop aren wired up as in ﬁgure 3.
(a) Assume that Q = 0 initially, determine the Q waveform. ( 2 Marks ) (b) Describe the operation of this circuit. ( 3 Marks) 8KHz Figure 3 A: (a) Both devices set up to toggle so the ﬁnal Q output will be a square wave of 21012
(b) This is a divide by 4 circuit QUESTION 7
Analyse the following circuit and draw its truth table.
