CAIS 0265 - Introduction to Digital Electronics and Microprocessors


Credits: 4

Provides a survey of digital electronics and microprocessors. Initial topics to be covered include logic gates, Boolean Algebra, simplification, logic circuits, flip-flops, shift registers, counters and memory systems, which will be followed by an examination of architectures, instruction sets and applications on microprocessors and microcomputers. Emphasis will be on computer hardware at the chip level. Software content will include the use of an assembly language to control a microprocessor that interfaces to other electronic components. Laboratory sessions will allow students to build and design simple circuits to reinforce lecture concepts.

Prerequisites: Knowledge of a high-level programming language.
(formally PHSC 0265).
