Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory: Course Description

Digital systems are designed to direct logical data or physical properties that can be expressed in numbers. Modern examples of digital systems include clocks, digital computers and cellular telephones. 'Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory' is a free course that is presented over a series of lectures by Professors Anantha Chandrakasan of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The primary objective is to develop in students a comprehensive understanding of digital design topics, including digital logic, flip-flops, counters, timers and synchronization. There is also an emphasis on PALS, CPLDs, FPGAs and finite state machines. The course teaches students to explain digital design concepts and the use of design tools, such as digital oscilloscopes and logic analyzers, as well as the ability to communicate the purpose and results of design projects.

The materials for this course consist of lecture notes, labs, assignments, exams, projects and more. If you are interested in taking this course, visit the digital systems course page.
