LEARNING OBJECTIVES


In this lab, students will:
  1. Design their own digital clock.
  2. Explore how to connect counters in series to count seconds, minutes, and hours.
  3. Learn how to display binary outputs on a seven-segment display.
  4. Learn how to use a Function Generator to simulate clock pulse.
  5. Design and incorporate an alarm with a snooze button into their digital clock.
  6. Implement hardware on the Digital Electronics breadboard.
