Digital Logic Design

Brief About Digital logic design

Digital Logic Design is the process of designing and constructing digital circuits. The design can be done in a number of different ways, but all involve calculating voltages and currents and then manipulating these numbers to create a working circuit.

There are many different tools that can be used for this purpose, but the most common ones are schematics software programs and breadboard software.
