Shift Registers

The Finite State Machine interactive, online lab is hosted by Thinkscape.
Students will learn the basic function of shift registers as well as explore the various types of shift registers. In the activities, students will use Multisim to observe the basic function of a four-bit shift register using D flip flops, examine the effects of changing the clock frequency on a shift register input, and explore the relationship between waveforms in shift registers and clock signals across flip flops. This will include building, simulating, and observing circuits, and then deploying them to the FPGA of the DSDB. This lab is hosted on the online, interactive platform Thinkscape.
