Digital Dice

NI Digital Systems Development Board (DSDB) is the hardware used to demonstrate topics covered in the digital electronics labs.
A variety of concepts and skills developed in the digital electronics lab series will be combined to design and build digital dice in a project-based lab. Students will reinforce content that has been taught prior to this lab such as counters and encoders. Students will design the entirety of the circuit using Multisim. However, the option is given to implement the Multisim code to the NI Digital Systems Development Board (DSDB) and create a physical representation of digital dice. The project is guided by the online, interactive platform Thinkscape.
