Hi,

First post

I am fairly rubbish at Electronics. My preference is power engineering. However I have a coursework to do for digital electronics. My understanding of digital is pretty lame.

Im not looking for answers to the question, I just need help understanding it lol.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction with this? The question is:

"Your task is it to design and test a digital circuit to compute the weight of

a 8-bit input vector. Furthermore, the circuit has to be able to detect the

lowest weight vector, assuming that the 5 input bits cannot all be 0 or 1.

Design and test can either be performed using MatLab or Tina. Beneath the

implementation using logic gates also explain and give the implementation

using either ROM, PLA or PAL devices"First post
