banner1
Title:Digital Systems: Logic Apps
Long Title:Digital Systems: Logic Applications
Module Code:ELTR6006
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Electronic Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2020/21 ( September 2020 )
Module Delivered in 3 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: MARTIN HILL
Module Author: DAVE HAMILTON
Module Description: This module builds on Digital Systems: Fundamentals and introduces the learner to practical combinational and sequential logic circuits such as adders and decoders, flip-flops, counters, and registers. An emphasis is placed on the selection, use, and application of standard IC chips to implement these circuits.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Draw logic diagrams and describe the function of a range of combinational logic circuits such as adders, comparators, decoders, encoders, and multiplexers.
LO2 Draw logic diagrams, truth tables and timing diagrams for all common flip-flops and use these to implement sequential logic circuits such as counters, parallel registers, and shift registers.
LO3 Use pinout and functional block diagrams to show how the MSI chips can be configured and cascaded to implement combinational and sequential circuits for various applications.
LO4 Work alone and in groups to analyse, measure, and interpret the performance of combinational and sequential logic circuits by means of computer simulation, and construct and test a selection of these circuits using standard MSI chips.
LO5 Write short reports in accordance with accepted engineering professional standards.
LO6 Conduct themselves in accordance with professional engineering standards while collecting and reporting on experimental data and in their dealings with others.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
