Digital Circuits and Systems, chapters 9, 12, 13, 14 and 15
Douglas V. Hall
McGraw Hill 1989
Digital Systems Disign is the second course in a sequence of digital and
microprocessor courses. This course covers shift register devices and
circuits; design and application of synchronous and asynchronous state machine
circuits using discrete devices and programmable logic devices; arithmetic
circuits and devices; internal architecture of a microprocessor; memory devices;
design and interfacing of simple memory systems, and an introduction to design
for test techniques. This course reinforces the design methodology,
documentation standards, and use of computer based tools introduced in EE171.

- No curve is used in determining grades.
- Anyone caught copying or cheating in any way will receive a zero for that
test or assignment, or may receive an F for the course.
- Make up exams will only be given if arranged before exam time
- Late homework or design projects may be given a reduced grade and will not
be accepted once the answers are posted.
- You must complete the design projects satisfactorily to receive a grade for
- Homework assignments will be given in class.
- Answers to homework assignments will be given in class, after the homework
assignments are returned.
- Test questions will closely parallel homework problems and design
projects, so to do well on the test it is highly suggested that you
complete all assignments.
