Digital Logic Design

Digital Logic Design is the basis of electronic systems. Rooted in binary codes, digital logic is a series of zeroes and ones. This is the foundation of electrical engineering and computer engineering fields. Digital logic designers build complex electronic components that use both electrical and computational characteristics. This is used to design hardware. This is what we’ll be learning here.
