Course Overview
This
course introduces students to the basic concepts of digital systems,
including
analysis and design. Both combinational and sequential logic will be
covered.
Students will gain experience with several levels of digital systems,
from
simple logic circuits to programmable logic devices and hardware
description
language. This is the fundamental course in computer engineering. This
course
will provide the fundamental background needed to understand how
digital
systems work and how to design digital circuits.

Course Outcomes
Students
completing this course should be able to:
1.
Represent and manipulate decimal numbers in different coding systems
and
convert decimal numbers between different positional number systems
including
decimal, binary (unsigned, signed-magnitude, and two’s complement),
hex, and
octal.
2.
Do negation and addition in the two’s complement number system, and
detect
overflow.
3.
Express and simplify logic expressions using the theorems of Boolean
algebra
and Karnaugh maps.
4.
Find the minimal sum-of-products (SOP) and product-of-sums (POS)
expressions,
and create a corresponding circuit from AND, OR, NAND, and NOR gates.
5. Analyze
and design combinational and sequential digital systems and use
standard
combinational and sequential digital building blocks including adders,
multiplexers, decoders, encoders, and registers.
6.
Analyze and design clocked synchronous state machines.
7.
Analyze a schematic of a combinational logic circuit and write its
logic
function.
8. Understand
the functionality of common digital building blocks including
multiplexers,
decoders, encoders, and comparators. Know how to use them to implement
logic
functions.
9. Calculate
the propagation delays through a circuit and draw a timing diagram.
10.
Design and simulate digital circuits using Hardware Description
Language (HDL).
11.
Describe in gate-level modeling, dataflow modeling, and behavioral
modeling and
implement the functionality of digital systems (e.g., logic and
arithmetic
functions, flip-flops, registers and counters, and state machines) in
Verilog.
12.
Write proper lab reports, communicating their objectives, approach,
observations, and conclusions.
13.
Design various arithmetic, logic, and memory components, e.g., ALUs,
shifters,
decoders, and multiplexers.

Policies
No
laptops, Internet appliances (e.g. Kindle, Nook, Ipad, etc.), smart
phones, may
be used during lectures or exams.
Exam
and quiz are close book close notes if not specified.
The
final exam will not be returned at the end of the semester, not even
temporarily
for you to review.
Regularly
being tardy for lectures, leaving in the middle of lectures, or earlier
from
lectures is unacceptable without prior consent of the instructor.
Cheating
or plagiarism will result in an automatic F grade in the course (so do
your own
homework and projects!).
