Tentative topics and outline
This course concerns the design of digital systems using integrated circuits.
The main emphasis is on the theoretical concepts and systematic synthesis
techniques that can be applied to the design of practical digital systems.
- Combinational Logic: Introduction to the functional and physical
properties of logic gates.
- Combinational Logic Design: Formal synthesis techniques for
designing combinational logic networks.
- Combinational Building Blocks: Discussion of several commonly encountered
combinational logic networks.
- Basic Storage Elements: Introduction to the behavior and structure of
latches, flip-flops, and registers.
- Sequential Circuits: Formal synthesis techniques for realizing synchronous sequential
- Sequential Building Blocks: Discussion of several commonly encountered
- Timing Analysis: Introduction to timing analysis of
combinational and sequential circuits.
