The purpose of this
unit is to equip students with the skills to design simple digital logic
circuits which comprise modules of larger digital systems.
The following topics
are covered: logic operations, theorems and Boolean algebra, number systems
(integer and floating point), combinational logic analysis and synthesis, sequential
logic, registers, counters, bus systems, state machines, simple CAD tools for
logic design, and the design of a simple computer.
are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. See
assessment summary table below for details of which outcomes are assessed
where. Outcomes are listed according to the course goals that they support.
