The basic goal of this subject is to cover an introduction to digital electronics from an updated point of view. To this purpose, the course starts by the fundamentals, i.e., number systems, binary coding and Boolean Algebra. The study of digital circuits begins by logic gates, combinational circuits, including the simplest arithmetic circuits, and ends by sequential circuits, including latches and flip-flops, synchronous sequential circuits, registers and counters. There is one chapter devoted to memories and another one devoted to programmable logic devices. An introduction to digital systems and microprocessors is also included.
