This module aims to provide students with knowledge of:

A knowledge of basic design methods for combinational and sequential logic circuits.

An understanding of number systems such as binary, hexadecimal, BCD

A knowledge of the laws of Boolean algebra.
Learning outcomes 
A. Understand the capabilities of synchronous digital systems.

B. Apply the theoretical knowledge to the design of a stable and robust digital system.

C. Acquire the experience and practical skills in building and debugging digital systems.
Method of teaching and learning 
This module is delivered through lectures and tutorials.

Problems are embedded within lectures and knowledge of the lecture material is tested by weekly home works delivered on the web based system.

Students will use the knowledge developed in the Laboratories included in the Experimental Skills module.
