Overview

Taking a hands on approach to learning digital logic can be difficult without the need to teach complex hardware descriptive languages (eg. VHDL). Multisim Programmable Logic Diagram (PLD) along with support for leading Digilent Teaching hardware allow educators to teach students the theory whilst students put it into practise. The PLD schematic allows educators and students to create graphical logic diagrams and deploy these to Digilent educational boards. In this tutorial series we demonstrate how digtal logic theory can be taught using educational hardware to provide a hands on approach to learning.
