Course Objectives 
This course is intended to provide a comprehensive understanding of the
fundamentals of digital logic circuits. Students should be able to analyze, and design combinational and sequential circuits.

Course Description 
Initial course in Boole algebra, combinational logic design, synchronous sequential circuit analysis and synthesis.

Course Outcomes 
1. An ability to perform arithmetic operations on binary integer numbers.
2. An ability to manipulate and simplify logic expressions using the postulates/theorems of Boolean algebra.
3. An ability to generate the prime implicants of logic functions using graphical (Karnaugh map) and tabular (QuineMcCluskey) methods, and to obtain their implementations with and without don't cares.
4. An ability to implement simple digital systems using MSI building blocks (Adders, multiplexers, decoders).
5. An ability to understand the basic functional and timing (clocking) properties of state devices (latches and flipflops).
6. An ability to analyze and design synchronous sequential circuits.
