- Course Description:
- Overall Educational Objective: The student will develop the ability to design both combinational and sequential digital logic circuits. He will learn to design with common library hardware components.
Course Learning Outcomes: A student who successfully fulfills the course requirements will have demonstrated an ability to:
1. Design combinational and sequential circuits using Boolean algebra.
2. Design combinational and sequential circuits using Karnaugh Maps.
3. Work with the various Complement Arithmetic Systems used for hardware arithmetic.
4. Understand elementary Boolean codes.
5. Work with the commonly encountered hardware library modules.
6. Design with Complex Programmable Logic, ROM, RAM, and Field-Programmable Gate Arrays.

Knowledge of a programming language, such as that
acquired in 14:332:252 - Programming Methodology I, is desirable but not required.

- Grading: (subject to change)
All exams are closed book. Electronic devices (such as laptops, calculators, or cellphones) ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE USED DURING EXAMS.
|Homework:|| 20 % |
|Random Quizzes: || 10 % |
|Midterm Exam 1: || 20% |
|Midterm Exam 2: || 20% |
|Final exam: || 30% |
Please do not inquire about exceptions, because none will be allowed.
No discussion is allowed among the students
during the exam. Such students shall be asked to leave the
Statute of limitations policy: You have one week after the day each homework or examination is returned to you to ask for a grade change. Grades will be changed only during this week and only if:
(a) We added up your score wrong.
(b) We made an error in grading a particular problem.
At the end of the term, we will not argue about points on the homeworks or on the exams.
If you are ill on the date of an examination, or if you must be away, please notify the professor before the examination, if possible, or at least as early as possible. Medical or employer interview slips for absences from the examination are required if you were ill or unavoidably absent.
- Collaboration / Academic Integrity:
- It is acceptable to discuss with others possible general
approaches to problems. It is not
acceptable to work together on a detailed solution, to copy a
solution, or to give away a solution. Such instances of academic
dishonesty will result in the following.
Students are expected to familiarize themselves with and adhere to the University Policy on Academic Integrity.
We will not consider unspecific and general complaints
about copying of homework or exam solutions. Students are mature
adults and should refrain from engaging in such dishonest
We cannot just “do something.” To take action, we need specific
information: who did what.
In cases where we have reasonable evidence to suspect that
students worked together on a detailed solution or
copied a solution, the following shall apply:
- If we are not able to distinguish the original solution
from a copy, all the suspect students will be given zero (0) credit.
- If we are able to distinguish the original solution and
a copy, the student with the original solution will be
given zero (0) credit, and the copier shall not be
penalized. This is designed so to discourage students from giving
away their solution.
- If a student claims not to have originated the solution
but copied one and provides the name of the student from
whom the solution was copied, the student with the original
solution will be given zero credit, and the copier will be given
the full credit (as graded).
- Students with Special Needs:
The University policy states that:
“It is the student’s responsibility to confirm with the course
supervisor that all arrangements are in place well in advance of the
scheduled date of the exam.”
If the student fails to make arrangements before the
exams, we may not be able to accomodate the last-moment requests.
