Binary Conversion and Adders

Binary Conversion and Adders interactive, online lab
In this lab, students learn about binary conversion and different methods of using logic gates to implement binary addition. In the activity, students use Mulitisim to simulate different methods of binary addition, and complete an analysis. Then, the students validate the simulation on the FPGA chip of the DSDB board.
