Digital Logic Design
Description: Hardware development involves both electrical and computer engineering. The Cooper Union students learn these skills in the Digital Logic Design course during their second year. This hybrid class (online with at-home prototyping) borrows from The Cooper Union course and challenges students to assess, design, build, test, and demonstrate an electronics project from scratch. Topics covered include digital logic design, circuit theory, and basic microelectronics. Students will engage in guided exercises and small-scale projects to put theory into practice. Students will be taught a free electronics simulation environment which they will use to develop some projects. They will also receive a small parts kit to construct actual prototypes of some projects. Student work culminates with an original design. It is recommended that students requesting this course have beginner electronics and programming experience. This class is limited to 24 students per session.
Instructors: Prof. Lisa Shay, Electrical Engineering, and Cooper Union student instructors
Prerequisites: Experience programming in an object-oriented language like C, C++, Java, or Python.

Class: Computer with camera and microphone to participate in online video class (Zoom) and program at the same time.
Project work: Computer with WiFi to use web-based software (TinkerCAD, Logism, Microsoft office) and file management system (Github, Microsoft Teams). TinkerCAD and Logisim (free software) will be used to simulate projects. Camera to collect images and video of your project and upload to presentation and portfolio.
