Duration (mins)


5.0 / 5


Task List

We will cover the following tasks in 21 minutes:

Welcome to Logisim

  • Navigation, tools and browsing in Logisim.
  • A look at an SR Latch circuit in the software as an example of circuit design and simulation.

Create an XOR Circuit

  • Create an XOR circuit using the NOT, AND and OR gates.
  • Create inputs and outputs for the circuits.
  • Create wires between various components.
  • Change attributes of components in circuits and in the library.
  • Simulate circuits.

Using Sub-Circuits

  • Analyse circuits and calculate truth tables.
  • Use existing circuits as components (sub-circuits).
  • Create an XNOR circuit from the previously created XOR circuit.

Frequently Asked Questions

In Rhyme, all projects are completely hands-on. You don't just passively watch someone else. You use the software directly while following the host's (Amit) instructions. Using the software is the only way to achieve mastery. With the "Live Guide" option, you can ask for help and get immediate response.
Nothing! Just join through your web browser. Your host (Amit) has already installed all required software and configured all data.
You can go to https://rhyme.com/for-companies, sign up for free, and follow this visual guide How to use Rhyme to create your own projects. If you have custom needs or company-specific environment, please email us at help@rhyme.com
Absolutely. We offer Rhyme for workgroups as well larger departments and companies. Universities, academies, and bootcamps can also buy Rhyme for their settings. You can select projects and trainings that are mission critical for you and, as well, author your own that reflect your own needs and tech environments. Please email us at help@rhyme.com
Rhyme's visual instructions are somewhat helpful for reading impairments. The Rhyme interface has features like resolution and zoom that are slightly helpful for visual impairment. And, we are currently developing a close-caption functionality to help with hearing impairment. Most of the accessibility options of the cloud desktop's operating system or the specific application can also be used in Rhyme. However, we still have a lot of work to do. If you have suggestions for accessibility, please email us at accessibility@rhyme.com
Please email us at help@rhyme.com and we'll respond to you within one business day.
