## Objectives

• To impart to you a formalism of logic enabling you to analyse logical processes
• To enable you to implement simple logical operations using combinational logic circuits
• To enable you to understand common forms of number representation in digital electronic circuits and to be able to convert between different representations
• To enable you to understand the logical operation of simple arithmetic and other MSI circuits (Medium Scale Integrated Circuits)
• To impart to you the concepts of sequential circuits enabling you to analyse sequential systems in terms of state machines
• To enable you to implement synchronous state machines using flip-flops
