Computation Structures - Part 1: Digital Circuits is a free online course conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This course will provide a hands-on introduction to the design and implementation of digital systems. Learn the basics of digital circuit design in Part 1 of MIT's digital systems series.
About the course
Digital systems are at the heart of the information age in which we live, allowing us to store, communicate and manipulate information quickly and reliably. This course is a bottom-up exploration of the abstractions, principles, and techniques used in the design of digital systems. If you have a rudimentary knowledge of electricity and some exposure to programming, roll up your sleeves, join in and design a computer system!
This is Part 1 of a 3-part series on digital systems, teaching the fundamentals of digital circuit design and is based on a course offered by the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Topics include digital encoding of information, principles of digital signaling; combinational and sequential logic, implementation in CMOS, useful canonical forms, synthesis; latency, throughput and pipelining.
