TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY:

 

Teaching-learning strategy:

The course will be taught through a combination of formal lectures, assignments, group work, informal activities and various textbooks.

Assessment strategy:

  1. Formative
  2. Summative
SYNOPSIS:

 

This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts of logic and digital electronics. By the end of the course, students are expected to be able to know or be able to do the following: – transitions between any number base with special reference to several binary formats: direct, octal, hexadecimal, binary coded decimal and Grey; – arithmetic in the above codes; – Boolean algebra and methods of its verification; – designs using combinational circuits (AND, OR, NOT) including ‘don’t care’ states; – minimal design using NAND-only or NOR-only combinational circuits; – design of arithmetic circuits: adder, – design with D and JK flipflops; special sequential machines: counters and registers.
