Module Description

CE264 is a lab-based module in which students use National Instruments Multisim and Xilinx Vivado CAD software to design a digital system for implementation on an FPGA board.

This module aims to teach students the basics of digital system design at gate level and how complex designs can be constructed from basic components.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this module, students will be expected to be able to:

1. Understand the building blocks of complex digital systems such as registers, counters and memory
2. Describe the implementation technologies used in various types of digital systems
3. Design digital systems building blocks at gate level
4. Design systems using combinational and sequential logic as appropriate and showing an appreciation of timing issues
