ECET 22900 - Concurrent Digital Systems
Credit Hours: 3.00.
This course establishes a foundation for concurrent digital systems. Common methods of describing digital circuit operation are studied along with the techniques for translation between any two methods. Basic building blocks of digital systems are defined and applied. Analysis techniques for combinational and sequential logic circuits or subsystems are covered. Computer-based development tools, programmable logic devices, and technical reference sources are used to build, test, and evaluate digital systems.
1. Describe combinational and sequential logic circuits using Boolean expressions, truth tables, timing diagrams, schematics, and hardware description languages (HDLs).
2. Describe the function of common digital building blocks such as logic gates, flip-flops, latches, decoders, encoders, multiplexers, demultiplexers, magnitude comparators, code converter, registers, counters, adders, and multipliers.
3. Analyze the theoretical operation of given combinational and sequential logic circuits or subsystems.
4. Construct, test, and troubleshoot digital circuits and subsystems for given applications using programmable logic devices.
5. Verify digital circuit operation using computer simulation tools.
6. Interpret published voltage, current, and timing parameters of digital devices.
