Project - Date of Birth
Introduction
In your digital electronics class of 34, there is roughly 7% probability that two of youshare the same date of birth. This is assuming that you are all the same year level(sophomore/junior). If you are not, the probability would be even lower.Your date of birth makes you unique. We are going to use this uniqueness to designa circuit that will display your date of birth on a single seven-segment display.Admittedly, this design does not have any real practical application, but is a funexercise that will bring together all of the design techniques that you have learned inthis lesson.Your date of birth may make you unique in your class, but in 2006 there were263,898,574,096 births world-wide. This means that on a daily basis, over 700,000,000 individuals share the same date of birth.

Procedure
Design
1.Design a combinational logic circuit that has three inputs and seven outputs. Asthe inputs (X, Y, and Z) count from 000 to 111, the seven outputs (a) thru (g) willgenerate the logic required to display your date of birth on a seven-segmentdisplay. The date of birth will be displayed in the MM-DD-YY format. For exampleif you were born on May 12, 1993, your design will display 05-12-93.2.Detail Design Specification:
The seven-segment display must be a common cathode.
Current limiting resistors (150
- 270
) must be used.
The Karnaugh mapping technique must be used to obtain the simplified logicexpression for each of the seven segments.
At least two segments must be implemented with NAND only logic.
At least two segments must be implemented with NOR only logic.
The implementation of the remaining segments is left to your discretion.
Simulation
3.Using the Circuit Design Software (CDS), enter and test your Date of Birthdesign. Use switches for the inputs X, Y, & Z. Verify that the circuit is working asdesigned. If the circuit is not working properly, review your design work andcircuit implementation to identify your mistake. Make any necessary correctionsand retest. Be sure to document all changes in case you need to reference prior work later.
Prototyping
4.Using the breadboard, build and test your Date of Birth design. Verify that thecircuit is working as designed. If it is not, DO NOT CHANGE YOUR DESIGN.You know that your design is good because you simulated it. If your circuit isn’tworking correctly, you must have built something incorrectly. Review your circuit
