CC2510 - Digital Logic and Computing Methods

Credit points: 3
Year: 2019
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

Section A: Digital Logic Boolean algebra and minimisation, practical design of combinational and clocked synchronous sequential logic circuits; ABEL representation of digital logic; programmable logic devices and programming these devices, logic families and interfacing.Section B: Computing Methods programming engineering applications in structured programming tools and environments.

Learning Outcomes

  • Section A: Digital Logictranslate an English based requirements statement into a form suitable for implementing as a logic design;
  • Section B: Computing Methodsa detailed knowledge of the management principles of multi-module software design and development;
  • demonstrate an ability to describe the electrical properties of, and justifiably select between, the commonly used logic family technologies, including EPLD devices;
  • design minimum gate count combinational logic circuits;
  • design synchronous sequential logic to satisfy state machine requirements;
  • develop a top-down programming style using structured programming techniques applied to a common programming language and operating system for the development of maintainable applications from a design specification;
  • discuss, in a cohesive and valid manner, the design processes and selection criteria used in digital logic design;
  • write ABEL programs to realise combinational and sequential logic circuits.
