Unit of study_

ELEC2602: Digital Logic

The purpose of this unit is to equip students with the skills to design simple digital logic circuits which comprise modules of larger digital systems. The following topics are covered: logic operations, theorems and Boolean algebra, number systems (integer and floating point), combinational logic analysis and synthesis, sequential logic, registers, counters, bus systems, state machines, simple CAD tools for logic design, and the design of a simple computer.

ELEC1601. This unit of study assumes some knowledge of digital data representation and basic computer organisation

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. design, fabricate and test the digital circuits and system in the laboratory
  • LO2. design combinational and sequential circuits and systems, using a clearly defined system based approach
  • LO3. understand how Boolean Algebrea can be used for the purpose of logic circuit analysis
  • LO4. describe basic digital logic building blocks such as logic gates, multiplexers, decoders, and PLAs
  • LO5. discuss how sequential logic components such as latches, flip-flops, registers and counters work
  • LO6. evaluate the performance of clocked sequential circuits
  • LO7. communicate effectively among the team members of the group.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.

There are no unit outlines available online for previous years.
