Digital Logic Basics

  • Brock J. LaMeres


This chapter provides a brief summary of classical digital logic design [1]. The point of this chapter is to expose the reader to the main concepts of digital logic so that they are familiar with them when moving into the computer organization topics covered later in the book. It is not intended to be an in-depth coverage of digital logic design. Rather, it is intended to expose the reader to the terminology used in digital logic, the most common number systems used in embedded systems; the basic logic operations used in combinational logic; and the basic operation of sequential logic, including synchronous registers and finite state machines.
