Spring 2011ECE 301 - Digital Electronics2 Logic Circuits Combinational Logic Circuits  Output is a function of the inputs.  Output is not a function of the order of the inputs.  No memory is required. Sequential Logic Circuits  Output is a function of the state of the circuit and the inputs.  Output is a function of the history of the inputs.  Requires memory.

Spring 2011ECE 301 - Digital Electronics4 Circuit Design For a given logic function, two two-level logic circuits can be realized.  An AND-OR (NAND-NAND) circuit  An OR-AND (NOR-NOR) circuit However, these two logic circuits do not necessarily have the same cost. An objective of the digital circuit designer is to minimize the cost of the circuit to be built.

Spring 2011ECE 301 - Digital Electronics5 Circuit Design Issues More than one circuit may meet the design requirements.  Solutions are, generally, not unique Cannot always satisfy all of the requirements. Design tradeoffs must be identified and considered.  Cost  Speed  Power consumption

Spring 2011ECE 301 - Digital Electronics16 Circuit Analysis

Spring 2011ECE 301 - Digital Electronics17 Circuit Analysis Analyze a logic circuit to determine its behavior. For a two-level circuit, the analysis process is simple.  Boolean expression can often be written by inspection. For multi-level circuits, the process is more complex.  Cannot write a Boolean expression by inspection.  Must follow a procedure to implement the analysis.

Spring 2011ECE 301 - Digital Electronics18 Analysis Procedure Identify the circuit inputs and output(s). Track the logical behavior from input to output. Determine the Boolean expression for the output(s). Derive the truth table for the output(s). Evaluate the electrical and timing characteristics of the circuit.
