Sequential Logic

North East Scotland College


Aberdeen City Campus, Fraserburgh Campus, Off campus


Much of the developments seen today in modern technology are down to the techniques you will study in this unit – computers, internet technology (switches hubs and routers), CD and DVD technology, mini disks, MP3 players, electronic musical instruments, MIDI, MP3 players, mobile phones, satellite communications, CAD/CAM systems – the list goes on.

This Unit was developed for the HNC and HND Electronics Group Awards, but may also be taken as a stand alone HN Unit. Its purpose is to provide you with the necessary knowledge to understand the organisation of sequential logic devices and circuits, and to develop skills to design, simulate, build and test sequential logic circuits.

Entry Requirements

Candidates should possess a basic knowledge and understanding of combinational logic. This may be evidenced by the possession of the HN Unit Combinational Logic or NQ Units E9S3 11 Combinational Logic; E9SG 12 Sequential Logic; E9SB 12 Logic Families and Digital System Analysis (or an appropriate equivalent).
