Basic Electronics and Number Systems


The students need to learn basic concepts of digital circuits and system which leads to design of complex digital system such as microprocessors. The students need to know combinational and sequential circuits using digital logic fundamentals. This is the first course by which students get exposure to digital electronics world.

Course Outcome

After learning the course the students should be able to explain about digital number systems and logic circuits. The student should be able to solve logic function minimization. The students should be able to differentiate between combinational and sequential circuits such as decoders, encoders, multiplexers, demultiplexers, flip-flops, counters, registers. They should be able to design using FSM. In the laboratory, they should be able to verify the functions of various digital integrated circuits. The students should be able state the specifications of logic families. They should be able to start writing HDL codes for various digital circuits. The student should be able to compare the design using digital circuits and PLDs. At the end they should be able to develop a course project using digital integrated circuits.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
