Digital Dice Project

Students will use the concepts and skills developed in previous labs, like counters and encoders, to design and build digital dice in a project-based lab. Students will design the entirety of the circuit using Multisim, and then create a physical circuit of digital dice.

This is lab 15 of 17 in the course, Digital Electronics.


In this lab, students will:
  1. Use a sequence of steps grounded in prior knowledge of digital circuits to create a digital dice that generates random numbers when activated
  2. Strengthen research and problem-solving skills as the conceptualize and build the digital dice circuit one step at a time
