Fundamentals of Digital System Design


Course description

This course teaches the fundamental theory and design methods for digital systems. Topics include: logic functions minimization, combinational circuit design, synchronous and asynchronous sequential circuit design, state diagrams, Mealy and Moore circuits, state minimization and assignment, basic computer organization, and controller implementation. This course also teaches the use of software tools for design, minimization, simulation, and schematic capture of digital systems. The digital systems that are designed will be implemented using MSI, LSI, and field programmable gate arrays.

How to get more information

Due to the quantity of students in this class, maintaining and using a class mailing list is infeasible. Therefore, there is a class webboard, which you should read frequently. The webboard will be used to answer all questions and to provide any additional information about homeworks. Is will also be an additional medium to lecture for announcements concerning homeworks, labs, exams, and deadlines. All questions that are of a general interest to the class should be posted to the news group. Questions on a personal level need to be directed to your assigned TA or to Professor Myers.

Homework & Projects

Homework should be turned into the appropriate EE homework locker located in MEB just North-East of the main EE office. Homework will be graded and returned in your discussion section within one week. There is no provision for turning in late homework or projects. All homework, labs, etc. are assumed to be correctly graded one week after they are returned. If you have a question regarding you grade, please contact the grader or for exams the person who graded the problem to address the issue. If there are any questions on grading, they must be addressed within one week of receiving a graded assignment. After the one week has lapsed, no changes will be considered. Please put your discussion section number and name of your TA on all homework and projects.
