Computers are digital machines. For the purpose of this discussion, the two values of a transistor will be referred to as logic 1 and logic 0. Food, drinks, and tobacco products: For example, assume Figure is an analog “real world” signal. Each transistor can remember only one of two possible values, on or off. If the value is changing with respect to time, then a sequence of measurements can be taken, the period between the measurements typically remaining fixed.

Completing an assignment “by committee” and submitting it as an individual work is academic misconduct unless the assignment has been clearly designated as a team assignment. It is sufficient to say that analog values represent a continuous signal with infinitesimal resolution.


List the three subsystems of a computer. A shift register is a series of “D” Flip Flops with More information. If you are confused about some point, chances are that others are also confused and will appreciate that you asked for clarification. Digital Logic Circuits 1 Digital Logic ircuits 1. Download or read it online for free here: Download link multiple PDF files. A digital computer has a More information.

Add an atom, and his weight changes. An 8-to-1 multiplexer More information.

Doing something with them is an entirely different matter. System design tools The same design theories used at the lowest level of system design are also applied at higher levels. These chapters show how the differences affect the way the computer represents and manipulates data. This book contains information valuable both to tool builders and to chip designers. Both of the electronic formats are free, and if you are comfortable with e-books, they should be all you need.

A make-up test may be given early in some cases. When you are absent, you are still responsible for material, assignments, and anything else that occurs in class. As mentioned earlier, if the samples are taken too slowly, details of the analog input are missed.


Labs are regularly scheduled once a week for the last hour of one of the class periods. Synchronous Memory What’s Next? What is stored program concept? A sequence of digital numbers can compputer be stored more compactly than an analog signal. This measurement is referred to as a digital value.
