Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 6.111 - Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory Project Information Introduction The term project in 6.111 is your opportunity to specify a small digital system. You will design, build, debug, demonstrate, and report on this system. This memorandum sets forth our expectations and requirements for this project and makes a few suggestions which should help to make your project a success. In order to accomplish all that is expected by the end of the term, it is essential that you stay on schedule . Both the determination of grades and the project time requirements are inherently subjective. Lab 3 provides some guidance to the evaluation of project size and complexity. A reasonable guideline as to size of 6.111 projects is that it not require more than a kit and a proto board per person. 6.111 student projects often become too large because of a desire to effect computations in parallel and at high speed. Data paths are often unnecessarily wide and redundant. It is generally far better to minimize the type and extent of the data paths even though this results in more complicated control circuitry. Use of microprogrammed sequencers and FSMs implemented with PALs allows implementation of complicated control with a small number of ICs. Please remember that massive data paths that enable computation at speeds far faster than needed do not represent a good design! It is almost always better to spend more time thinking and less time wiring.

    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.
