Pre-requisite: -------
I. Course Description:
This course is an introduction to digital systems design. It enables the student to
understand how the basic components of computers are specified, optimized and
implemented using current digital electronics technology. This knowledge is a key
factor in preparing the student to understand how computers work in subsequent
courses.
II.
Course Objectives:
The student should be able to understand and describe different key areas related to
the field of Digital System Design.
Knowledge
-
Describe digital systems and digital computers and their components.
Learn different numbering and encoding systems, together with their
operations.
Design a digital circuit given a Boolean function.
Get familiar with typical combinatorial components, e.g. adders, decoders,
encoders and multiplexers.
Get familiar with typical sequential components, e.g. various types of latches
and flip-flops.
Cognitive Skills
-
Use Smart Draw to draw logic diagrams.
Synthesize and simulate digital circuits using CAD software.
Enable the student to express real life problem in logic design terminology.

Interpersonal Skills &amp; Responsibility
-
-
Participate in class activities and discussions.
Participate in the forum for discussions related to the class.
Discuss the course material and homework assignments with classmates
without exceeding the bounds defined by the approved collaboration
practices.
Follow the course policies on cooperation and collaboration (as mentioned in
the Course Guide).
Numerical &amp; Communication Skills
-
Students can learn digital communication skills using e-mails, interactive
presentations, and newsgroup discussions.
