Digital Logic Syllabus: B.Sc. CSIT 1st Semester

B.Sc. CSIT Digital Logic Syllabus is a comprehensive course that covers the fundamental principles of digital logic and its applications in computer science and engineering.

The syllabus is divided into 7 units, starting with an introduction to binary systems and Boolean algebra and covering topics such as logic gates, simplification of Boolean functions, combinational logic, combinational logic with MSI and LSI, synchronous and asynchronous sequential logic, and registers and counters.

Through this course, students will learn about the basic building blocks of digital systems and how they are used to design and implement complex digital circuits and systems. The syllabus is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in the principles of digital logic and prepare them for further study in the field.
