Lecture 1: Overview –Digital Concepts
Digital Electronics IDr Pete SedcoleDepartment of EEEImperial College London(Slides based on Floyd & Tocci)
14 Oct 2008E1.2 Digital Electronics I1.2
to give a first course in
digital electronics
providing youwith both the knowledge and skills required to designsimple digital circuits and preparing you for a second,more advanced, course next year.

 –to impart to you a
formalism of logic
enabling you to
analyselogical processes
 –to enable you to implement
simple logical operations
usingcombinational logic circuits –to enable you to understand common forms of
in digital electronic circuits and to be able to convertbetween different representations –to enable you to understand the logical operation of simple
and other
MSI circuits (Medium Scale IntegratedCircuits)
 –to impart to you the concepts of
sequential circuits
enabling you toanalyse sequential systems in terms of
state machines
 –to enable you to
implement synchronous state machines

Tutorial Questions
 –accompany each lecture –a chance to practice the techniques studied –graded according to difficulty:
* easy, only a little interesting** harder, more interesting*** challenge, very interesting
 –completion of all * and ** questions is essential to your success –completion of *** questions indicates a very good understanding –answers given out shortly after questions –not assessed

Binary Digits, Logic Levels, and Digital Waveforms
The conventional numbering system uses ten digits:0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9.The binary numbering system uses just two digits:
The two binary digits are designated
They can also be called LOW and HIGH, where
LOW= 0
HIGH = 1
