Synopsis:

The goal of this course is to provide the introduction into designing and realization of digital circuits. First, necessary mathematical apparatus, such as the Boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, minimization and realization of logical functions is presented, followed by brief introduction into basics of logical circuits, such as the logical gates, flip-flops, TTL and CMOS logic etc. The second part is dedicated mainly to modern designing techniques of digital circuits using programmable FPGA and VHDL language. During these lessons, the basics of VHDL together with numerous examples are evaluated to provide a complex insight into this hardware description language and modern methods of designing and realization of digital circuits.

Requirements:

The only prerequisite is the knowledge of basics of mathematical logic at the high school degree level.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Number systems with various radices (binary, hexadecimal). Unsigned and signed binary numbers. Binary addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Modulus and remainder operations, residue number system. Binary codes - BCD, Gray, weighted codes, etc.

2. Logical functions and their expressions, Boolean algebra, logical gates.

3. Minimization of logical functions, algebraic minimization, De Morgan transformations, Karnaugh maps, realization of logical functions using logic gates.

4. Implementation of logical functions and modifications using logical gates, Quine-McCluskey algorithm for minimization of logical functions.

5. Combinational and sequential circuits, logical hazards, synchronous and asynchronous operations, flip-flops, latches.

6. S-R, D, J-K flip-flops, synchronous and asynchronous counters, registers, Moore and Mealy machines.

7. Technologies for HW realization of logic gates and circuits - TTL, CMOS.

8. Modern methods for designing and realization of digital circuits and gates - introduction into programmable devices, FPGA, hardware description languages, VHDL.

9. Basics of VHDL - basic operations, data types, concurrent and sequential domain, conditions, simulations, behavioral design, structural design, flip-flops in VHDL.
