Logic Circuits is a course that centers around the fundamentals of binary code, logic gates and the construction of complex circuits based on these logic gates. In this project, the main goal was to create a working LED Digital Clock. It had to be able to accept user input: set time in seconds, minutes and hours. Time format didn’t really matter, but for the design me and my team chose military time (00:00 – 23:59, or 24 hour based). The circuit is composed of various parts: BCD decoders, Multiplexers, etc. Everything was built from the ground up; our team only used a counter that Logic Works provided, but we still created and implemented our own counter. At the end of this post there’s a download link for the project (you can also find it in the Repository tab); it’s in zip file format and contains a PDF document (the project report) that contains the overview, specifications, parts used, diagrams made, schematic printouts and the actual files to run the clock (you’d need to have Logic Works). It was created in Logic Works v5.
