Boolean algebra is perhaps the oldest method used to minimize logic equations. It provides a formal algebraic system to manipulate logic equations so that the minimum can be found. A basic understanding of this system is indispensable to the study and analysis of logic circuits.

Situations can arise where a circuit has N input signals, but not all 2N combinations of inputs are possible. Or, if all 2N combinations of inputs are possible, some combinations might be irrelevant.

Circuits that have more complex inputs and outputs then we have previously discussed require less tedious and error prone methods of analysis. Here we will discuss how multiple output systems are analyzed.

In 1827, George Ohm demonstrated through a series of experiments that voltage, current, and resistance are related through a fundamental relationship: Voltage (V) is equal to Current (I) times resistance (R).

This project presents a brief, non-rigorous introduction to electronic circuits and systems. Only the most essential concepts are presented, with emphasis on topics used in later projects. As with all projects in this module, a companion “Exercise1” document is available for further understanding.

This module presents the basic structure of combinational logic circuits, and introduces the use of computer aided design (CAD) tools in modern circuit design.

The requirements for new logic circuit designs are often expressed in some loose, informal manner. For an informal behavioral description to result in an efficient, well designed circuit that meets the stated requirements, appropriate engineering design methods must be developed.

This project exercise presents several worded problems that serve as behavioral specifications for digital circuits. Your job is to design, simulate, and download those circuits to your board. The topics from this exercise are based off of the material presented in Real Digital Project 4.
