Module Description:The purpose of this module is to provide an understanding of digital combinational logic design techniques. The module also introduces synchronous design, use of timmimg diagrams and interface to circuits such as LED's and 7 segment displays . In addition, it develops skills in the construction, test and debug of digital circuits.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Convert from one number system to another and apply arithmetic operations to binary,hexadecimal and binary coded decimal numbers.
LO2 Describe the operation of logic gates and draw logic symbols and circuit diagrams. Read, understand, interpret and draw logic schematics
LO3 Use a Karnaugh map to simplify Boolean expressions and truth table functions.
LO4 Design, construct and test combinational logic circuits for a given Boolean expression or truth table. Apply the laws and rules of Boolean algebra
LO5 Use laboratory equipment in a safe manner to debug and analyse digital circuits
LO6 Describe the operation of NAND/NOR latches and D-type flip flops.
LO7 Draw a timing diagram of combinational and synchronous circuits
