would have contact hours 3:0:0. A course with 3 lecture hours and 1 tutorial hour and a single 3-hour
lab per week would have contact hours 3:1:3.

10. Course Summary

(A high level overview of the aims of the course, student activities, nature of assessment.)
This course is meant to give them a broad exposure to the understanding and
design of digital circuits.

11. Course Aims

(Specific details of what the course intends to achieve in terms of student knowledge and
ability. Items should begin with phrases such as To provide students with , To enable
students to , To develop students skills in and so on.)

To enable students to understand digital logic.

The course will provide the students with

(i) the concept of a digital circuit consisting of ICs,
(ii) the knowledge of components used in digital circuits,
(iii) the methodology to analyse and design digital logic circuits, and
(iv) the skill to use computer-aided circuit analysis.
Experiments will run in synchronism with the lectures to support the methods and
techniques taught in the lectures. Through the experiments, the students will
(i) learn how to use test equipment for making measurements,
(ii) gain confidence in their analytical skills through experimental verification,
(iii) learn how to assemble and test simple digital circuits, and
(iv) develop skill to use computer-aided tools for analysis of circuits.

12. Learning Outcomes

(A list of what students will know or be able to do as a result of successfully completing the
course. Should be expressed as knowledge, skills, or attitudes.)

1. Perform decimal, octal, hexadecimal, and binary conversions.

2. Apply Boolean algebra to solve logic functions.
3. Analyze digital multiplexing circuits.
4. Analyze logic switching circuits.
5. Analyze memory storage devices.
6. Understand verilog Hardware Description Language.
7. Plan and execute projects.

On successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

After successfully completing the course, a student will have the capability to:
i) Translate a decision-making process into digital logic,
ii) Design simple digital circuits based on combinational and sequential logic,
iii) Write simple Verilog programs to simulate digital circuits, and
iv) Follow how microprocessors translate computer programs into hardware

14. Teaching and Learning Strategy
(Teaching methods and tools, use of LMS, software used or taught, external visits,

Teaching and Description of Work Class Hours Out-of-Class

Learning Strategy Hours
Lectures supported by Design work using paper 30 hours 6 hours
tutorials, assignments and pencil as well as (week) (week)
and experiments experimental work

15. Assessment Strategy
(Formative assessment and feedback to student, Summary assessment at the end of the
Tutorials will enable the students to judge their understanding of the course
material unfolded through the lectures. Tutorials will clarify their doubts and
improve their problem-solving skills. 2-3 Quizzes conducted in the lectures will
keep the students alert and provide continuous assessment. Mid-semester and Final
examinations will be conducted according to the university time table.

16. Mapping of Learning Outcomes to Assessment Strategy

(For each learning outcome listed in Item 12, describe the formative and summative
assessment strategy)
