Note: Credit not granted for both CSCI 295 and CSCI 150 or CSCI 250
The basic concepts of digital logic design and the functions and uses of typical digital components belonging primarily to the small and medium scale integration (SSI, MSI) families will be introduced in this course. In addition, students will be introduced to digital logic & digital systems, machine level representation of data, computer organization, memory system organization & architecture, and interfacing & communication. The assembly language of a particular CPU will be used to illustrate machine language programming concepts. An interactive logic simulation environment for designing and testing logic circuit design will be used for the assignments.
