PHYS 340 - Digital Electronics

Cross-Listed as  
A survey of fundamental ideas and methods used in the design and construction of digital electronic circuits such as computers. Emphasis will be on applying the theoretical aspects of digital design to the actual construction of circuits in the laboratory. Topics to be covered include basic circuit theory, transistor physics, logic families (TTL, CMOS), Boolean logic principles, combinatorial design techniques, sequential logic techniques, memory circuits and timing, and applications to microprocessor and computer design.  Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory per week. Prerequisite(s): MATH 137  and permission of instructor. Offered alternate spring semesters. (4 Credits)
