|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
• To enable students to understand the essential principles of digital logic systems as used for control, communications and information processing.
• To enable the student to design such systems.
• To study the operation and performance of computer arithmetic circuits, synchronous and asynchronous sequential logic circuits.
Outline Of Syllabus
Logic Design and VHDL:
• Review of techniques for logic design, from discrete logic gates to ASICs; The VHDL language as a tool for digital design; FPGA and PLA architectures.
• Combinational logic circuits for the parallel adder; carry propagation; carry look-ahead; subtraction; logic functions; the ALU; multiplication and shifting; serial multipliers: parallel and carry save methods.
• Synchronous systems:
Finite state machines; state assignment; synthesis of synchronous FSMs; implementation methods; memory and combinational logic; examples of implementation of controllers and algorithms.
• Asynchronous systems:
Fundamental mode; implementation of a primitive flow table; races; metastability and synchronisation failure.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures provide core material and guidance for further reading, problem solving practice is provided through tutorials. Work is further re-enforced through laboratory sessions.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination provides the opportunity for the student to demonstrate their understanding of the course material. The problem solving aspects of the assessment enable students to demonstrate that they are able to apply this understanding and their analysis and synthesis skills to novel situations. Laboratories provide the opportunity to assess practical skills and the application of theoretical knowledge.
