This course is about the principles of digital logic and

its implementation in circuits and systems.

Modern electronics/computer engineers should be able to

effectively utilize millions or even billions of logic gates

available from advanced semiconductor manufacturing process.

Logic design is fundamental to such applications as

computer, audio/video/graphics, wired/wireless communication.

Some technology from this course will be useful in other courses.

For example, finite state machine is essential in compiler design.

We will cover the following topics:

1. Introduction to computer circuits

2. Two level Combinational Logic

3. Multilevel Combinational Logic

4. Programmable Logic

5. Arithmetic Logic Circuits

6. Sequential Logic Design

7. Sequential Logic Case Studies

8. Finite State Machine Design

9. Finite State Machine Optimization

10. Computer Organization

They are the first ten chapters of the textbook.
