A B C D Fireplace Control Circuit Gas Line Emergency Cut-Off Valve Thermal Sensors (4) Project 2.2.5 Universal Gates and K-Mapping: Fireplace Control Circuit Introduction The Acme Fireplace Company has hired you to redesign the fireplace control circuit for their latest residential gas fireplace. The fireplace burner is equipped with four thermal sensors that output a logic (1) whenever a flame is present. These sensors are connected to the fireplace control circuit which outputs a (1) to the emergency cut-off valve to keep the gas flowing (i.e., a zero will turn the gas off). The original design of the fireplace control circuit was quite simple. For the gas valve to remain on, all four sensors needed to output a logic (1). During field testing it was discovered that variations in gas pressure and humidity cause the thermal sensors to occasionally output a logic (0) even when a flame was present. This caused frequent unnecessary shut downs and constant customer dissatisfaction. For the redesign, it has been determined that the emergency cut-off value should remain open as long as three of the four sensors indicate that a flame is present. Additionally, the designers have asked you to add a second output indicator to the control circuit. This indicator will output a logic (1) when the four sensors do not all agree (i.e., not all on or not all off). This indicator will be used by the service technician to diagnose whether a faulty sensor exists.

Design Design a combinational logic circuit that meets the above detailed design specifications. Additionally: The Karnaugh mapping technique must be used to obtain the simplified logic expression for both outputs. The circuit that controls the emergency cut-off valve must be implemented using only 74LS00 two-input NAND gates. The circuit for the possible faulty sensor indicator must be implemented using only 74LS02 two-input NOR gates. Simulation Using the Circuit Design Software (CDS), enter and test your Fireplace Control Circuit design. Use switches for the inputs A, B, C, and D and a probe or LED circuit for the two outputs. Verify that the circuit is working as designed. If it is not, review your design work and circuit implementation to identify your mistake. Make any necessary corrections and retest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
