Course Description

Digital logic design is the basis of digital systems, such as computers and cell phones. It’s a comprehensive study of the principles and techniques of modern digital systems. One of the main goals of this course is to teach students the fundamental concepts in classical digital design and to demonstrate clearly the way in which digital circuits are designed and analyzed today. Digital logic is rooted in binary code, which renders information through zeroes and ones. This course facilitates the design of digital logic circuits that convey information, including logic gates with functions that include AND, OR, and NOT gates. These functions facilitate computing, robotics, and other electronic applications.

Course Learning Outcome


Identify and explain fundamental concepts of digital logic design including basic and universal gates, number systems, binary coded systems, basic components of combinational and sequential circuits. (C1, C2)


Use the acquired knowledge to apply techniques related to the design and analysis of digital electronic circuits including Boolean algebra and multi-variable Karnaugh map methods. (C3)


Analyze small-scale combinational and sequential digital circuits. (C4)


Develop small-scale combinational and synchronous sequential digital circuit using Boolean algebra and K-maps (P4)
