View the complete Teaching Digital Logic Fundamentals tutorial series
Typically when students are learning digital logic fundamentals they are limited to theoretical understanding. Multisim allows students to put this theory into practice through schematic simulation and deployment to hardware. Multisim enables you to program your Digilent teaching boards directly from the Multisim environment, making the connection between theoretical concepts and hardware implementation more understandable.
This tutorial demonstrates the process a student can go through to learn Boolean logic and illustrates how, through using Multisim, students can apply this theory to hardware to see the physical response.
When learning digital logic students will start with the three fundamental building blocks: AND, OR and NOT gates.
Boolean Expression: AB
Boolean Expression: A'B+AB'+AB
Boolean Expression: A’
Multisim allows students to interactively learn the action of these fundamental logic gates that make up the building blocks of all digital systems.
In this tutorial we will learn the action of AND gates through simulation. Multisim provides interactive components and virtual instruments to help increase students' understanding.

Once students have gained insight through simulation of digital logic, they can continue this learning through deploying to Digilent Educational hardware.
This tutorial will provide an example of how students can create a Programmable Logic Design (PLD) and deploy this to Digilent hardware. The tutorial has been written using the Digilent Nexys 3 Board, but is the same process for all Digilent cards.
The Getting Started with Digilent Boards in Multisim tutorial will talk through the process for creating a PLD schematic for the Digilent board you are using.
