Logic design
What is design? Given a problem develop a solution using available resources to meet some specific design performance parameters Logic design? Converting application task inputs and outputs to specifications in terms of 0s and p p 1s. (encoding) several possible ways Establishing mathematical relationship and developing combination of basic elements to achieve the goal several possible ways Selection of optimum design

Typical steps in logic design


representation: "0", "1" on a wire
set of wires (e.g., for binary integers)

assignment: x = y data operations: x + y 5 control:


sequential statements: A; B; C conditionals: if x == 1 then y loops: for ( i = 1 ; i == 10, i++) procedures: A; proc(...); B;

Combinational vs sequential
Combinational :
Output values depend only on current input Logic gates we have been talking so far (AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR gates)

Seque t a Sequential:
Output values depend not only on current inputs but also on previous inputs Concept of Memory needs clock to keep track of sequence
PRASANNA S GANDHI 5

Sequential: deeper fundes


In reality,
Outputs do not change instantaneously Why not? Time delay associated with charging etc.

So the definitions of combinational or sequential are based on steady state observation. System has settled down Sequential circuits have memory even after the system is settled down or in steady state
PRASANNA S GANDHI 6

Sequential: deeper fundes


Memory of a system is represented as its state Changes in system state are only allowed to occur at specific times controlled by an external periodic clock Clock period is the time that elapses between state changes. it must be sufficiently long so that the system reaches a steady-state before the next state change steadyat the end of the period

Sequential vs Combinational: Example


Combinational logic
Input A, B Wait for clock edge Observe C Wait for clock edge Observe C again : SAME Input A, B Wait for clock edge Observe C Wait for clock edge Observe C again :
