Fundamentals of Digital System Design


NT LAB Information

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.

Teaching staff

Instructor: Dr. Chris Myers

Teaching assistants: Eric Mercer, Glenn Miles, Kip Killpack, Shivakumar Sompur, and Ryan Hayward.

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 news group resides on the news.cs.utah.edu server and can be read from all over campus. 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, test, 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 EE locker #1. Located in MEB just North-East of the main EE office. Homework will be graded and returned to the EE homework room 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 your TA or the person who graded the problem ( for tests ) 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 the name of your discussion section TA on all homework and projects.
