CST 170 - Digital Logic

Comprehensive coverage of basic gates, Boolean Algebra, Karnaugh Mapping and Quine-McCluskey technique for circuit simplification.  Adders, subtractors, multiplexers, code converters, asynchronous and synchronous counters presented in detail as basic computer building blocks.  Analog-digital and digital-analog interfacing.  Lab exercises use a combination of Multisim and/or TTL and CMOS gates.

Prior completion of MAT 096 or equivalent math course is strongly recommended.

Credits: 3
2 Class Hours, 2 Laboratory Hours

Learning Outcomes of the Course:

Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

  1. Identify and describe the function of the seven basic logic gates.
  2. Use Boolean Algebra, Karnaugh Mapping or Quine-McClusky to reduce complex logic expressions to their simplest terms.
  3. Identify and use medium scale integrated circuits like adders, subtractors, multiplexers, demultiplexers, encoders and decoders.
  4. Design counter circuits using asynchronous design techniques.
  5. Design counter circuits using synchronous design techniques.
  6. Identify basic analog-to-digital conversion circuits (A/D converters).
  7. Design A/D converters to perform specific conversions.
  8. Identify basic digital-to-analog conversion circuits (D/A converters).
  9. Design D/A converters to perform specific conversions.
