CSI 250 - Spring 2020 - Exam 1 Review Sheet - Overview
-- A good way to study is to try more problems similar to the
homework. You want to be come efficient at solving problems of
that type so that the exam is a snap!
-- much of digital logic doesn't come from our book, so I've
supplemented with a ton of links on the course web page. Take a
look!
- von Neumann vs bus architectures
- the von Neumann bottleneck
- backward compatibility and levels of architecture (high v low)
- Truth Tables (using for "proofs")
- Logic Gates, Diagrams and Algebra
- Combinational Logic
- Full Adder/ Half Adder
- Algebraic manipulations (DeMorgan's Law)
- Sum of Products (SOP), minterms
- race conditions, glitches, hazards
- Karnaugh maps
- 3-to-8 decoder (and similar like 2-to-4, 4-to-16)
- Binary Arithmetic (half adder, full adder, ripple carry adder)
- Hexadecimal, Octal
- Binary Formats
- Clocks, Hertz and converting between seconds per clock cycle to Hz
- S-R flip flops, D flip flops,
- D flip flop Master-slave configuration and shift registers
- Conversions between numerical base (remainder/multiplication method
- Names and conventions for binary, decimal, octal, and hexadecimal
- Converting between numerical bases using remainder and multiplication methods
- Integer Representations (conveting to and from)
-Excess format, 2's Complement, unsigned format
