Course: ECE 442/L. Digital Electronics and Lab (3/1)
Prerequisites: ECE 320/L, ECE 340, ECE 350. Corequisite: ECE 442L. This course covers models of electronic nonlinear devices and their analysis for digital circuit applications. Additional topics include: the limitations of digital circuits; design of logic gates, memory elements and registers at the device level; system considerations with reference to various technologies including CMOS, Pseudo-NMOS, ECL, Pass Transistor, and dynamic logic circuits; and integrated circuit layout. Graduate students enrolled in the class will be required to develop computer simulation design programs that will produce results that meet a set of circuit specifications. Available for graduate credit. 3 hours lecture, one 3-hour lab per week.
