Digital System Design lab is to attain the knowledge of digital logic levels and learning these using VHDL language. The main objective of this lab is to prepare the students for analyzing, designing the digital systems and to check the simulation. DSD lab formulates the students by developing programs for combinational and sequential circuits. VHDL is a language used to design the digital system without any physical components. DSD lab includes experiments such as designing code converters using VHDL such as BCD to seven segment converters, binary to the grey converter, BCD to excess 3 converters. It also makes the students learn about VHDL design for a parallel adder, n bit comparator, and designing counters, flip-flops.
DSD lab also provides the procedural thought to draw the circuit diagrams using BDE which helps in converting circuit diagrams to VHDL codes. Using BDE, students will clearly understand the transition between circuit diagrams and VHDL codes. In order to get exhaustive knowledge in VHDL, students are assigned to do diminutive projects which includes LFSR and pseudo-random binary sequences.
