Objectives The main objective of this assignment is to take a 4 bit binary number and convert it into various types of number systems. The number systems that will be used are decimal, hexadecimal and octal. You will also take your inputs and output them in an ASCII display. You will be given logic equations and will be asked to construct the logic circuit with gates using the program LogicWorks. Background Binary, decimal, hexadecimal and octal are four very commonly used number systems. The decimal number system is base 10 and it used to measure or count things. The binary number system is base 2 and computers process things using the binary system. The octal (base 8) and hexadecimal (base 16) numbering systems are used much more often by programmers, because it is easy to convert to and from binary when these number systems are applied. This lab will help you better understand how numbers are represented in each of those number systems and how numbers are converted to and from different number systems. Specifications There was no physical hardware used in this lab because it was strictly software, using the program LogicWorks, but from the LogicWorks library digital hardware was utilized. In this lab binary switches and binary probes were used and there were different types of displays used such as decimal, hexadecimal, octal and ASCII. There were also three types of logic gates put to use such as the not gate (the inverter), the AND gate and the
