Most natural quantities that we see are analog and vary
continuously.
Analog systems can generally handle higher power than
digital systems.
Analog Quantities
A digital quantity has a set of discrete values.
Digital Quantities
Digital systems can process, store, and transmit data more
efficiently but can only assign discrete values to each point.
Digital waveforms change between the LOW and HIGH
levels.
A positive going pulse is one that goes from a normally LOW
logic level to a HIGH level and then back again.
Digital waveforms are made up of a series of pulses.

What are digital electronics?
Sound is an analog signal.
On a CD, digital sound is
encoded as 44.1 kHz, 16 bit
audio.
The original wave is 'sliced' 44,100
times a second - and an average
amplitude level is applied to each
sample.
16 bit means that a total of 65,536
different values can be assigned,
or quantized to each sample.
DVD-Audio can be 96 or 192
kHz and up to 24 bits resolution

Digital Technology Metrics
Kilo, Mega, Giga, what comes next?
Binary Digits
The two digits in the binary system, 1 and 0, are called bits,
which is a contraction of the words binary digit.
How to represent 0 and 1?
In digital circuits, two different voltage
levels are used to represent the two bits.

The higher/lower voltage level is referred
to as a HIGH/LOW, or H/L.
Logic Levels
The voltages used to represent a 1 and a 0 are called logic
levels.
HIGH can be any voltage between a specified minimum
value and a specified maximum value.
LOW can be any voltage between a specified minimum
and a specified maximum.
Binary Representations
Positive Logic System
A 1 is represented by HIGH and a 0 is represented by LOW.
Also called ACTIVE HIGH LOGIC
Negative Logic System
A 0 is represented by HIGH and a 1 is represented by LOW.
Also called ACTIVE LOW LOGIC
Codes
Groups of bits (combination of 1s and 0s), called codes, are
used to represent numbers, letters, symbols, instructions,
and anything else required in a given application.
The American Standard Code for Information Interchange
(ASCII) pronounced askee is a universally accepted
alphanumeric code used in most computers and other
electronic equipment.

Digital Waveforms
Digital waveforms consists of a series of pulses, (voltage
levels that are changing back and forth between the HIGH
and LOW levels).
Pulse Train
Digital waveforms are sometimes called pulse trains.
Ideal Pulses
A single positive-going pulse is generated when the voltage
goes from its normally LOW level to its HIGH level and then
back to its LOW level.
A single negative-going pulse is generated when the voltage
goes from its normally HIGH level to its LOW level and then
back to its HIGH level.

Nonideal Pulse
The time required for the pulse to go from its LOW (HIGH) level
to its HIGH (LOW) level is called the rise (fall) time.
In practice, it is common to measure rise (fall) time from
10%(90%) of the pulse amplitude to 90%(10%) of the pulse
amplitude.
Nonideal Pulse
The pulse width is a measure of the duration of the
pulse and is often defined as the time interval
between the 50% points on the rising and falling
edges.
Periodic Pulse
A periodic waveform is one that repeats itself at a fixed interval,
called a period (T ).
The frequency (f ) is the rate at which it repeats itself and is
measured in hertz (Hz).
The relationship between f and T is expressed as follows:
f

The duty cycle (D ) is defined as the ratio of the pulse width (t

)
to the period (T ) and can be expressed as a percentage.

Nonperiodic Pulse
A nonperiodic waveform, of course, does not repeat
itself at fixed intervals.
They are composed of pulses of randomly differing
pulses widths and/or randomly differing time intervals
between the pulses.
A Digital Waveform Carries Binary Information
Binary information that is handled by digital systems appears
as waveforms that represent sequences of bits.
When the waveform is HIGH, a binary 1 is present; when the
waveform is LOW, a binary 0 is present.
Each bits in a sequence occupies a defined time interval called
a bit time, or bit interval.
The Clock
In digital systems, all digital waveforms are
synchronized with a basic timing waveform, called
the clock.
The clock is a periodic waveform.
The clock waveform itself does not carry information.
Timing Diagrams
A timing diagram is a graph of digital waveforms
showing the actual time relationship of two or more
waveforms and how each changes in relation to the
others.
Data Transfer
Data refers to groups of
bits that convey some
type of information.

Binary data, which are
represented by digital
waveforms, must be
transferred from one
circuit to another within a
digital system or from one
system to another in
order to accomplish a
given purpose.
Serial Data Transfer
When bits are transferred in serial form from one point to
another, they are sent one bit at a time along a single
conductor.
To transfer n bits in series, it takes n time intervals.
Parallel Data Transfer
When bits are transferred in parallel form, all the bits in a
group are sent out on separate lines at the same time.
There is one line for each bit.
To transfer n bits in parallel, it takes one time interval.

Value of number is determined by multiplying each
digit by a weight and then summing.



The weight of each digit is a POWER of the RADIX
(also called BASE) and is determined by position.

Radix (Base) of a Number System
When counting upwards in base-10, we increase the
units digit until we get to 10 when we reset the units
to zero and increase the tens digit.
So, in base-n, we increase the units until we get to n
when we reset the units to zero and increase the n-s
digit.
Consider hours-minutes-seconds as an example of a
base-60 number system:
Eg. 12:58:43 + 00:03:20 = 13:02:03

NB. The base of a number is often indicated by a subscript.
E.g. (123)
10
indicates the base-10 number 123.

Converting Decimal to Binary
To convert a fraction, keep multiplying the fractional part by
2 until it becomes 0. Collect the integer parts in forward
order
Example: 162.375:
So, (162.375)
10
= (10100010.011)
2
162 / 2 = 81 rem 0
81 / 2 = 40 rem 1
40 / 2 = 20 rem 0
20 / 2 = 10 rem 0
10 / 2 = 5 rem 0
5 / 2 = 2 rem 1
2 / 2 = 1 rem 0
1 / 2 = 0 rem 1
0.375 x 2 = 0.750
0.750 x 2 = 1.500
0.500 x 2 = 1.000
Why does this work?
This works for converting from decimal to
any base
Why? Think about converting 162.375 from
decimal to decimal




162 / 10 = 16 rem 2
16 / 10 = 1 rem 6
1 / 10 = 0 rem 1
0.375 x 10 = 3.750
0.750 x 10 = 7.500
0.500 x 10 = 5.000

Signed vs. unsigned is a matter of interpretation;
thus a single bit pattern can represent two different
values.
Allowing both interpretations is useful:
Some data (e.g., count, age) can never be
negative, and having a greater range is useful.

Why Not Sign+Magnitude?

Twos Complement
Most common scheme of representing
negative numbers in computers
Affords natural arithmetic (no special rules!)
To represent a negative number in 2s
complement notation
1. Decide upon the number of bits (n)
2. Find the binary representation of the +ve value in n-
bits
3. Flip all the bits (change 1s to 0s and vice versa)
4. Add 1

Twos Complement Example
Represent -5 in binary using 2s complement
notation
1. Decide on the number of bits

2. Find the binary representation of the +ve value in 6

Properties of Two's Complement
Numbers
X plus the complement of X equals 0.
There is one unique 0.
Positive numbers have 0 as their leading bit (MSB);
while negatives have 1 as their MSB.
The range for an n-bit binary number in 2s
complement representation is:
from -2
(n-1)
to 2
(n-1)
- 1
The complement of the complement of a number is

1) Try to subtract 5 7 cant.
Must borrow 10 from next column.
4) Subtract 7 4 = 3
3) Subtract 9 6 = 3
2) Try to subtract 1 5 cant.
Must borrow 10 from next column.
But next column is 0, so must go to
column after next to borrow.
Add the borrowed 10 to the original 0.
Now you can borrow 10 from this column.
Add the borrowed 10 to the original 5.
Then subtract 15 7 = 8.
Add the borrowed 10 to the original 1..
Then subract 11 5 = 6
Decimal Subtraction Explanation
So when you cannot subtract, you borrow from the column to
the left.

The amount borrowed is 1 base unit, which in decimal is 10

The 10 is added to the original column value, so you will be
able to subtract.

Binary Subtraction Explanation
In binary, the base unit is 2

So when you cannot subtract, you borrow from the
column to the left.
The amount borrowed is 2.
The 2 is added to the original column value, so
you will be able to subtract.

1s complement Subtraction
Steps:
a. First find out the 1s Complement of the subtrahend.

b. Then do unsigned addition on the numbers.

c. If there is a carry, then take the carry out and add it
to the sum for getting the final result.

d. If there is no carry, the result will be negative and
we should take the 1s Complement of the sum to
get final result





1s complement Subtraction
Example: 7 4 = ?





0 1 1 1 (+7)
+ 1 0 1 1 + (- 4)
1 0 0 1 0

0 0 1 0
+ 1
0 0 1 1 (+3)
1s complement Subtraction
Example: 4 7 = ?





0 1 0 0 (+4)
+ 1 0 0 0 + (- 7)
1 1 0 0

No carry, so take the 1s complement of the result and will
be negative.

1s complement of 1 1 0 0 is 0 0 1 1 = (-3)

To Subtract two binary numbers, take the 2s
Complement of the Subtrahend and add it with the
Minuend.

If there is a final carry after the leftmost column
addition, discard it and the final result is the obtained
one.

If there is no carry, the result is negative. So the final
result will be the 2s Complement of the obtained and
put a sign
2s Complement Subtraction
Example without CARRY:-
Q: 20 - 25
Write -25 in two's complement format.
1 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 one's complement
1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 two's complement

1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 (-25)
0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 ( 20)
1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1

No carry , so take 2s Complement of the result.
Final Result = 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 = (- 5)

2s Complement Subtraction
Example with CARRY:-
Q: 10 5
2s Complement of 5 = 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1

0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 +
1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1
1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1

Now discard the carry and the obtained is the result
Final result = 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 = (5)
2s Complement Subtraction
The difference, (a b) is computed as:

(a b) = a + [2s complement(b)]



In General .
2s Complement Subtraction
Since the negative of any number is its two's
complement, the sum of a number and its
two's complement is always 0

Add +12 and -12

+12 = 00001100

-12 = 11110100

Binary Multiplication
Multiplication cant be that hard!

Its just repeated addition
If we have adders, we can do multiplication also

Binary multiplication example
Since we always multiply by either 0 or 1, the partial products
are always either 0000 or the multiplicand (1101 in this

Introductory Paragraph
In its basic form, logic is the realm of human
reasoning that tells you a certain proposition
(declarative statement) is true if certain conditions
are true.

Propositions can be classified as true or false.

Many situations and processes that you encounter
in your daily life can be expressed in the form of
propositional, or logic, functions.

Since such functions are true/false or yes/no
statements, digital circuits with their two-state
characteristics are applicable.
Logic Functions
Several propositions, when combined, form propositional,
or logic functions.
For example, the propositional statement The light is on
will be true if the The bulb is not burned out is true and
if The switch is on is true.






The first statement is then the basic proposition, and the
other two statements are the conditions on which the
proposition depends.
Basis for digital computers.
The true-false nature of logic
makes it compatible with binary
logic used in digital computers.
Electronic circuits can produce
logic operations.
Circuits are called gates.
NOT
AND
OR
Basic Logic Operations
There are three basic logic operations: NOT, AND, and OR.

Each of the three basic logic operations produces a unique
response (output) to a given set of conditions (inputs).

The standard distinctive shape symbols for the three basic logic
operations are shown below.
Logic Gates
A circuit that performs a specified basic logic operation is
called a logic gate.
Logic gates form the building blocks for digital systems.
The true/false statements mentioned earlier are represented
by a HIGH (true) and a LOW (false).
AND & OR gates can have any number of inputs.
The AND operator
(both, all)

rivers AND salinity



dairy products AND export
AND Europe
The OR operator
(either, any)

fruit OR vegetables



fruit OR vegetables OR cereal
The NOT operator

fruit NOT apples





Lets use logic to examine class.

AND left handed
Please stand up if you are:

OR black hair
OR left handed
Please stand up if you are a girl NOT left handed
How has the group changed depending on the logical
operator used.
Nesting
When more than one element is in parentheses, the
sequence is left to right. This is called "nesting."
(foxes OR rabbits) AND pest control
foxes OR rabbits AND pest control
(animal pests OR pest animals) NOT rabbits
Order of precedence of logic
operators
The order of operations is: AND, NOT, OR
Parentheses are used to override priority.
Expressions in parentheses are processed first.
Parentheses are used to organize the sequence
and groups of concepts.

Write out logic statements using
logic operators for these.
You have a buzzer in your car that sounds when
your keys are in the ignition and the door is open.
You have a fire alarm installed in your house. This
alarm will sound if it senses heat or smoke.
There is an election coming up. People are
allowed to vote if they are a citizen and they are
18.
To complete an assignment the students must do
a presentation or write an essay.
Truth Tables
Truth tables provide a way to
describe the relationship between
inputs and outputs of a logic circuit.



Typically, A is considered to be the
least significant variable in a truth
table.
Timing Diagrams
Timing diagrams also show relationships between
input and output conditions in a logic circuit.

Gates
NOT gate
The simplest possible gate is called an "inverter" or a NOT gate.
One bit as input produces its opposite as output.

AND Gate Application
The AND operation is used in computer programming as a
selective mask.
If you want to retain certain bits of a binary number but reset
the other bits to 0, you could set a mask with 1s in the
position of the retained bits.
If the binary number 10100011 is ANDed
with the mask code - 00001111, what is the
result?

OR operation can be used in computer programming to SET / RESET
certain bits of a binary number.

Example: ASCII letters have a 1 in the bit 5 position for all lower case
letters and a 0 in this position for all upper case letters.(Bit positions
are numbered from right to left starting with 0)
What will be the result if you OR an ASCII
letter with the 8-bit mask 00100000?
The resulting letter will be
lower case.

Fan - in
Fan-in specifies the number of inputs available on a gate.
Gate primitives often limit the number of inputs to 4 or 5.
To build gates with lower fan-in, multiple gates can be
interconnected.
Implementation of a 7-input NAND gate using
NAND gates with 4 or fewer inputs.
Fan - in

Fan-in the number of inputs to the gate
gates with large fan-in are bigger and slower
Fan out
Also known as loading factor

Defined as the maximum number of logic
inputs that an output can drive reliably

A logic circuit that specify to have 10 fan out
can drive 10 logic inputs

The inverter has a fan-out of 3 (i.e., the inverter drives 3 inputs).
Fan out
Fanout is the number of standard loads that the output can drive.

The number of standard loads is limited by the amount of input
current each load requires as compared to the current that the
driving gate can deliver.

Fanout, therefore, is generally considered to be the smaller of the
following two items:
(max) I
(max) I
= fanout or

Propagation Delay
Every logic gate experiences some delay (though very small) in
propagating signals forward from input to output.
This delay is called Gate (Propagation) Delay.
Formally, it is the average transition time taken for the output
signal of the gate to change in response to changes in the
input signals.
Three different propagation delay times associated with a
logic gate:
t
PHL
: output changing from the High level to Low level
t
PLH
: output changing from the Low level to High level
t
PD
=(t
PLH
+ t
PHL
)/2 (average propagation delay)

: output changing from the High level to Low level
t
PLH
: output changing from the Low level to High level
t
PD
=(t
PLH
+ t
PHL
)/2 (average propagation delay)
Propagation Delay
In reality, output signals
normally lag behind input
signals.
Ideally, there will not be
any delay.
Propagation Delay
A glitch in the output of the AND
gate caused by propagation delay
in the inverter.

Note that we have assumed zero
delay for the AND gate.
Calculation of Circuit Delays
Amount of propagation delay per gate depends on:
(i) gate type (AND, OR, NOT, etc)
(ii) transistor technology used (TTL,ECL,CMOS etc),
(iii) miniaturisation (SSI, MSI, LSI, VLSI)

Propagation delay of logic circuit
= longest time it takes for the input signal(s) to propagate to
the output(s).
= earliest time for output signal(s) to stabilise, given that
input signals are stable at time 0.
Calculation of Circuit Delays
In general, given a logic gate with delay, t.
If inputs are stable at times t
1
,t
2
,..,t
n
, respectively; then the
earliest time in which the output will be stable is:
max(t
1
, t
2
, .., t
n
) + t
To calculate the delays of all outputs of a combinational
circuit, repeat above rule for all gates.
Calculation of Circuit Delays
As a simple example, consider the full adder circuit where
all inputs are available at time 0. (Assume each gate has
delay t.)
where outputs S and C, experience delays of 2t
and 3t, respectively.
Power Requirements
Every IC need a certain power requirement to
operate

This power supply comes from the voltage supply
that connected to the pin on the chip labeled V
CC


The amount of power require by ICs is determined by
the current that it draws from the V
CC

The actual power is I
CC
x V
CC

(avg) = (I

Power Requirements
Noise Margin or Immunity
Stray electric and magnetic fields can induce voltages on
the connecting wires between logic circuits this unwanted
signal called noise

These cause the input signal to a logic circuit drop below
V
IH
(min) or rise above V
IL
(max)

Noise Margin or Noise Immunity refers to the circuits
ability to tolerate noise without causing spurious changes
in the output voltage
Below given is a diagram showing the range of voltages that can occur at a logic circuit output.
Noise Margin
The high state noise margin V
NH
is defined as
V

George Boole
My name is George Boole and I lived in
England in the 19th century. My work on
mathematical logic, algebra, and the
binary number system has had a unique
influence upon the development of
computers. Boolean Algebra is named
after me.
What is Boolean Algebra ?
Boolean Algebra is a mathematical technique that provides the
ability to algebraically simplify logic expressions.

These simplified expressions will result in a logic circuit that is
equivalent to the original circuit, yet requires fewer gates.

My name is Augustus DeMorgan. Im an
Englishman born in India in 1806. I was
instrumental in the advancement of
mathematics and am best known for the logic
theorems that bear my name.
P.S. George Boolean gets WAY too much credit.
He has more theorems, but mine are WAY
Cooler!
DeMorgans Theorems
DeMorgans Theorems are two additional simplification
techniques that can be used to simplify Boolean
expressions.
Again, the simpler the Boolean expression, the simpler

IMPLICANT: An implicant of a function is a product term
that is included in the function.

PRIME IMPLICANT: An implicant is prime if it cannot be
included in any other implicants.

ESSENTIAL PRIME IMPLICANT: A prime implicant is
essential if it is the only one that includes a minterm.

Implicants
Example: f(x,y,z) = xy + yz
xy(not I), xyz(I, not PI), xz(PI,not EPI), yz(EPI)

Quine-McClusky
(2) select a subset of primes
f ( x, y, z, w ) = xzw+ yzw + xyz +
xyw + xzw + xy+yw
=> the selected sum for f is
f ( x, y, z, w ) = xyw + xzw + xy

A subset of implicant is a cover of the function if each
minterm for which the function is 1 is included in at least
one implicant of the subset.
