Digital Logic introduces a student to two-state logic. Logic analysis will use the binary number system and Boolean algebra. Both combinational (AND-OR) logic and sequential (flip-flop) logic are studied. Typical logic designs include 7-segment displays, adders, multiplexers, and counters. Logic designs are implemented using simulation, programmable logic devices and transistor-transistor logic.
This laboratory implements the theoretical principles of ELET 1133, Digital Logic. Students learn to build working circuits based upon design goals. Logic solutions utilize transistor-transistor logic (TTL) integrated circuits, simulation software and programmable logic devices (PLD).
In circuit theory, a student will analyze electrical circuits according to the fundamental definitions and laws as they apply to direct current circuits. The physical parameters defined include charge, voltage, current, resistance, capacitance and inductance. The laws applied include Ohm's Law, Joule's Law, Kirchhoff's Voltage Law, and Kirchhoff's Current Law. The analysis relies on algebra and exponentials. A required recitation is included as a group problem solving session.
This course provides an introduction to computer hardware and troubleshooting and an introduction to operating systems. It serves as a foundation for the electronic technician to build on. The knowledge and skills obtained in this course will prepare the student for the CompTIA A+ Certified Computer Technician exam.
