### ECE 331 – Digital System Design

Logic Circuit Design

(Lecture #7)

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

### Design Concepts

Combinational Logic Circuits

Outputs are functions of (present) inputs

No memory

Can be described using Boolean expressions

Hierarchical design

Used to solve large design problems

Break problem into smaller (sub-)problems

Solve each sub-problem (i.e. realize design)

Combine individual solutions

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

### Design Concepts

Specification

Describes the problem to be solved.

Describes what needs to be done,

not how to do it.

Implementation

Describes how the problem is solved.

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

### Design Concepts

Issues

Most solutions are not unique.

More than one solution may meet the specifications.

Cannot always satisfy all of the requirements.

Must identify (and study) design tradeoffs.

Cost

Speed

Power consumption

etc.

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

### Design Process

Identify requirements (i.e. circuit specifications)

Determine the inputs and outputs.

Derive the Truth Table

Determine simplified Boolean expression(s)

Implement solution

Verify solution

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

Exercise:

Design a combinational logic circuit to meet the following specifications:

1. 3-bit input (A = a2a1a0)

2. 1-bit output (z)

3. Output is high (logic 1) when 2 < A <= 5.

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

Example:

Design a 7-Segment Decoder

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

1. Circuit Specification

The 7-Segment Decoder must decode Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) digits so that they can be displayed on a 7-Segment Display.

### 7-Segment Decoder

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

2. Determine Inputs and Outputs

Input: Binary Coded Decimal digits

### 7-Segment Decoder

ECE 331 - Digital System Design

### Binary Coded Decimal

Assign a 4-bit code to each decimal digit.

A 4-bit code can represent 16 values.

There are only 10 digits in the decimal number system.

Unassigned codes are not used.

How do we interpret these unused codes?

Hint: think about K-maps.
