During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

Unit of study_

ELEC9602: 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.

Assumed knowledge:
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 the relevant session.
