Digital Electronics

This lab manual covers both combinational and sequential digital electronics topics. Students begin by simulating logic gates in NI Multisim, and then build and deploy PLD circuits to an FPGA target. The lab manual also offers project-based applications that combine and reinforce skills students learn throughout the course.
