Interactive teaching of elementary digital logic design with WinLogiLab
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an interactive computerized teaching suite developed for the design of combinatorial and sequential logic circuits. This suite fills a perceived gap in the currently available computer-based teaching software, with the purpose of providing alternative-mode subject delivery. The authors were, therefore, prompted to develop a Microsoft-Windows tutorial suite, WinLogiLab, comprising a set of interactive tutorials that show the link between Boolean algebra and digital combinatorial and sequential circuits. The combinatorial tutorials follow the initial design steps: from Boolean algebra, to truth tables, to minimization techniques, to production of the combinatorial circuit in a seamless way. Similarly, the sequential tutorials can design simple finite-state counters and can model more complex finite-state automata.
