CATALOG DESCRIPTION:
Introduces digital electronics using logic gates and flip-
flops, involves their application in combinational and sequential digital circuits. Topics
include binary arithmetic, Boolean algebra, mapping techniques, decoders, displays,
encoders, multiplexers, demultiplexers, registers, and counters. Logic circuit
analyses, implementation of circuits using standard IC chips or programmable logic
devices, circuit testing and troubleshooting are emphasized.
Multisim and Altera
Quartus II are used to simulate circuit behaviors.

MAJOR COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
At the completion of this course, the student will have demonstrated competency
through testing and lab work to:
1. Construct, test, and troubleshoot combinational and sequential logic circuits using
standard logic chips.
2. Analyze the theoretical operation of given combinational and sequential logic
circuits.
3. Design combinational logic circuits for specified applications using Boolean
algebra and Karnaugh mapping techniques.
4. Convert between binary, hexadecimal, BCD, and decimal numbers.
5. Apply standard combinational functional logic blocks in various circuit
applications.
6. Apply standard counter chips in specified sequential circuit applications.
7. Apply PLDs (FPGAs) in various combinational logic circuit applications using logic
compiler software on a personal computer.
8. Describe the historical and cultural impact of digital logic.

HOMEWORK
Homework problems are due the day the next homework is assigned. Assignments
will be picked up by the instructor and graded.
Late homework will NOT BE
ACCEPTED
.
It is very important that the student work all homework assignments.
