This course provides the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for the student to install, maintain, and trouble-shoot circuits that contain digital logic devices. The Binary, Hexadecimal, and Decimal number systems are described, and techniques for converting from one system to another are introduced. Basic definitions and common elements of digital logic devices are introduced and explored. The digital logic devices covered include basic logic gates (AND, OR, NOR, NAND, XOR), logic functions, flip-flops, counters, shift registers, memories, and interfacing integrated circuits. Common representations of digital logic functions and circuits are introduced, including truth tables, waveform representations, schematics, symbols and Boolean expressions. Practical circuits that employ these devices are also studied. The lecture material is reinforced by a series of lab assignments that develop skills in designing and creating prototype circuits using common logic elements.
