Digital Circuit Projects
Picture Of The Book:
Digital Circuit Projects

The modern world is bypassed with electronic equipment, handling huge amounts of data. At the heart of this scenario lies digital circuits that provide the strong intelligence required. Thus, there is a growing need for design engineers in this expanding area..
Digital circuits, often called Integrated Circuits or ICs, are the central building blocks of a Central Processing
Unit (CPU). To understand how a computer works, it is essential to understand the digital circuits which
make up the CPU. This text introduces the most important of these digital circuits; adders, decoders,
multiplexers, D flip-flops, and simple state machines.
What makes this textbook unique is that it puts the ability to understand these circuits into the hands of
anyone, from hobbyists to students studying Computer Science. This text is designed to teach digital circuits
using simple projects the reader can implement. But unlike most lab manuals used in classes in Digital Circuits
or Computer Organization classes, this textbook is designed to remove the barrier of a laboratory
infrastructure needed in a face-to-face environment at a college or university. This textbook is designed to be
used by the reader to create the circuits in their own homes. The textbook is free. The cost of the kits needed to
do the labs is reasonable. And the projects are well documented and can be implemented by even novices to
electronic projects.
This text allows professors to add laboratory projects in digital circuits to students in online classes in
Computer Organization. This enhances these classes with interesting and fun exercises that reinforce the
classroom topics.
This text can also be used by a hobbyist who wants to learn more about digital circuits and how computers
work. The material is presented at a level that someone with no experience in digital circuits and electronics
can successfully complete the projects, and gain an understanding of the circuits which go into making up a
computer.
The second edition of this includes a chapter on Boolean Algebra for professors who would like to include a
more formal background into digital circuits. It also changed the chapter designed to give a context for the
CPU to reference a relatively simple CPU developed by the author in Logisim.
