Step 1 - Label the nodes. Put in a ground iff one is not already given (prefer between voltage sources).
Step 2 - Write down the nodes. Determine how many node voltages are already known (given by voltage sources).
Step 3a - If there are dependent sources
Lectures 21: Operating System Memory Management
A. In a uniprogramming system, memory is divided between the resident monitor and the user program. Though the
CPU is idle much of the time as the user program waits for I/O, the overhead of c
Lectures 11 & 12: Synchronous Sequential Circuits Minimization
1. This week I noted that our seven-state edge detector machine on the left side below could be simplified to a five-state
machine on the right. What is the formal procedure for doing this?
Lecture 10: Synchronous Sequential Circuits Design
1. General Form
1.1. Moore type has outputs dependent only on the state, e.g. ripple counters, and shift registers.
1.2. Mealy typ
Lecture 7: Latches
1. Combinational circuits can be described by Boolean expressions where the output is strictly dependent on only the
2. Sequential circuits depend not only on the current inputs, but also on the history of inputs, i.e. they have
Lecture 3: Gates, Truth Tables, Karnaugh Maps
A. Functionally Complete Sets = a set of gates that is capable of implementing any Boolean function (truth table.)
1. Fewer types of gates can make fabrication easier
2. AND, OR, NOT. XOR requires fiv
Intro and History of Computers
A. Organization and Architecture
1. Computer architecture = attributes of system visible to the programmerthose that impact the logical
execution of a program.
2. Computer organization = operations units and
