This course covers pulse waveforms, linear circuit responses and switching circuit analysis, pulse-shaping and pulse-generating circuits, flip-flops, one-shots, registers and counters. Different IC logic family characteristics (TTL, NMOS, ECL, CMOS, LVT) will be analyzed and compared. An integral study and analysis of the circuits used when interfacing the different types of IC logic families will be covered. There will be an in-depth analysis and practical applications of the various digital number systems and codes. Arithmetic manipulation of signed and unsigned binary numbers will be also covered. An introduction to the 8-bit microcomputer architecture will be presented. The student will perform computer analysis of digital circuits using the “Electronics Workbench Multisim” software. By means of a Capstone design project, this course offers an integrated learning experience that was designed to give the students a hands-on, real world engineering problem solving experience. Students will design, build, troubleshoot, demonstrate and present a digital capstone design project. Several laboratory experiments throughout the semester will require formal written reports. Three class hours, four laboratory hours.
Prerequisites: ELT 102 and ELT 112 with a grade of C- or better, or permission of department.
