3 Course Description This course provides a modern introduction to logic design and the basic building blocks used in digital systems, in particular digital computers. It starts with a discussion of combinational logic: logic gates, minimization techniques, arithmetic circuits, and modern logic devices such as field programmable logic gates. The second part of the course deals with sequential circuits: flip- flops, synthesis of sequential circuits, and case studies, including counters, registers, and random access memories. State machines will then be discussed and illustrated through case studies of more complex systems using programmable logic devices. Different representations including truth table, logic gate, timing diagram, switch representation, and state diagram will be discussed.
4 Course Description: Lab The course has an accompanying lab component that integrates hands-on experience with modern computer-aided design software including logic simulation, minimization and an introduction of the use of hardware description language (VHDL). The hands-on assignments will make use of the Xilinx ISE tool chain for the design and implementation of a variety of projects. The labs will give you direct feedback on how your design performs and will be a great learning tool.
5 Course Description: Lab Lab in Lopata Hall 401 We will use a development board form Opal Kelly (XEM 6002). The boards contains a Xilinx Spartan 6 chip. Support USB and PMODs.
