Explain how a counter is decoded.
Understand the basic operation of a digital clock
Describe two specific IC counters and troubleshoot basic faults.
Identify the basic types of data movement and storage capacity in shift registers.
Explain how serial in/serial out and serial in/parallel out shift registers operate.
Explain how parallel in/serial out and parallel in/parallel out shift registers operate
Describe the operation of a bidirectional shift register.
Discuss several IC shift registers
Discuss the applications of shift registers
Describe the basic concepts of a PLD and discuss some major types
Explain the structure of programmable array logic
Explain the basics of generic array logic
Describe the process of progrmming a PLD
Discuss how VHDL is used to program a PLD to perform a specified logic function
This course will cover chapters six through nine in the text and a major test will be given at the end of each one, approximately every two or three weeks.
Labs will be assigned each day to enhance the lecture.
There will be daily quizzes to check for comprehension.
|Discussion Topics||Discussion topics are: binary codes, data logic, latches, flip-flops, timers, counters,shift registers and programmable logic|
|Attendance Policy||Students may be dropped after five unexcused absences.|
|Determination of Final Grade||There will be approximately six major tests including the comprehensive final exam with makeup tests during the last week of school. Labs will be assigned each day, written and performance, with no makeup labs. Early departure without completing all assignments is an incomplete lab for no credit. Two labs will be excused. After two, the lab grade will be reduced by three points per lab for incomplete labs. The quiz average is a test grade and the homework average is a test grade. The homework grade is reduced by 5 points per day when turned in late. The average of all test grades is the course grade. Disturbance in class is a 1 point deduction from the final grade, per incidence, and includes but is not limited to: cell phones ringing, text messages, talking without permission and other disrespectful behavior.|
|Final Exam Date||May 12, 2011 - 8:00 AM|
