The ECE 2500 Homepage

Welcome. This is your official information source for Introduction to Digital Logic, a freshman-level engineering course, offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, currently serving approximately 76 students. In this course we examine engineering methods for designing digital logic circuits such as what is commonly found in computers and other kinds of digital hardware. ECE 2500 is a required course for students majoring in electrical engineering, computer systems engineering and computer science. Your instructor this spring is Dr. Dean Johnson, an Associate Professor in the Department.

This Week's Schedule February 13 - 15

Exam I was Tuesday, February 13th. The average score on the exam was a 13/20 = 65%. Two students scored a perfect 20/20 and three students scored a 19/20. In addition, the iClicker bonus added additional credit to raise the class exam average to approximately 70%. The exam was closed book/notes/calculator and consisted of twenty multiple choice questions similar in nature to the questions found on the first five Quizzes. The questions on the exam were derived by changing the numbers on the example questions already given at left. Please bring a pencil or two with you to class; you will be filling out a mark/sense sheet to record the answers to your exam. On Thursday, we will hand back and go over the exams as well as go over the prelab to Lab 6.

There is no more HW for a couple weeks.

This week in the lab, you will be doing Lab5 : Inside Mobile Devices, and because of the exam, this experiment has no prelab.

The experiment next week is called Lab6: Standard Combinational Logic Circuit Blocks. In this experiment, you get to wire up some logic circuits on breadboards, using some real integrated circuits from the 1960-70s. Its a real retro lab! This prelab asks you to analyze some NAND and NOR circuits, plus do some outside reading in the text to understand how a decoder and multiplexer works. The prelab is worth 10 points.
