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.
