Unit 71 - Combinational and sequential logic

"The aim of this unit is to provide an introduction to combinational and sequential logic to 1st year HND students. Apart from an introduction to the subject, a design and project based approach will be followed. Students will learn to analyze a problem, apply appropriate design techniques, simulate the solution using specialized software and finally implement and test the system.

Also the unit will introduce programmable logic as a single chip solution to more complex problems"
