Using the logic converter within National Instruments MultiSim to work with digital logic circuits, truth tables, and Boolean equations
8-Bit register in a rotate right operation using the carry bit. This demonstrates the rotate function that is used in the internals of microprocessors and other digital sequential systems.
A how-to video for creating 4-bit counter waveform patterns using a USBee ZX digital USB test equipment
Different ways to find digital components in the MultiSim component database for placement unto the schematic capture window.
A schematic, waveforms, and explanation of creating a decade counter from a 74LS191 4-bit counter IC. Decoding is required to truncate the count at 10 and is accomplished using a 74LS00 NAND gate. A 74LS42 decoder IC decodes the 0 and 1 outputs.
Animation of the operation of a shift register used to shift data right. The register initially is parallel loaded and during the right shift, it has a constant 0 serial input. Initial loaded data is presented so you can see the results of the right shift and the loss of data on the right is visualized with a bit bucket. This is a sequential digital structure that is used as an internal element of a microcontroller or microprocessor.
