TEC2172 - Digital systems

6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL

Undergraduate Faculty of Engineering

Leader(s): L Kleeman

Offered

Clayton Second semester 2009 (Day)

Synopsis

This unit introduces the student to modern logic design techniques, hardware used and common representations. Topics include two and multi-level combinational logic, decoders, multiplexers, arithmetic circuits, programmable and steering logic, flip-flops, registers, counters, RAM and ROM. Using this hardware the design component will include finite state machine design and applications to computer data path control. This will incorporate simple analogue and digital I/O interfacing. Programmable logic devices will be covered, and the use of a hardware description language for describing, synthesizing and testing digital logic. Laboratories cover logic design, implementation, and testing.

Objectives

To understand the analysis and design of complex digital systems from building blocks, using modern digital design software.
