Laboratory Session 1 - Combinational Logic


  • To test the operation of basic digital gates: AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR.
  • To test some fundamental laws of Boolean Algebra.
  • To test De Morgan's Theorem(s) - which we will see in later lectures.
  • Equipment Required:

    The equipment you will require is as follows:

    • A lab notebook - not hard-backed, just for keeping records
    • Your electronics kit - borrowed from the Technical Staff through the library loan of a laminated sheet.
    • Digital voltmeter (available at the workstations or with your kit).
    • Collect hook-up wire from the demonstrators and  ICs from your kit.

    You should submit your laboratory write-up electronically at:

    There is a template document at: Template Document to help you to write-up this laboratory.

    Remember to turn off your multimeter when not in use as the battery will go flat very quickly.
