ELT 111 - Introduction to Digital Electronics
Covers a wide range of introductory skills and techniques required by an electronic technician. Topics include AND, OR, NAND, NOR, NOT logic functions and integrated circuits, Boolean Algebra, number systems, flip-flops and simple applications. Two class hours, three laboratory hours.
Prerequisite: Level 6 Math placement or MTH 098 with a grade of C or higher or equivalent
Course Learning Outcomes
1. Describe the basic logic operations; AND, OR, NAND, NOR, INVERTER and flip-flop circuits. Predict the output response as either an expression or truth-table.
2. Given a digital circuit, expression or truth table, evaluate and simplify using Boolean algebra and/or Karnaugh mapping techniques.
3. Analyze the complex inputs of several types of flip-flop devices and sketch the outputs. Employ groups of flip-flops with basic logic circuits in some simple applications such as counters.
4. Wire and construct basic digital circuits using manufacturers data sheets available online, selected integrated circuits, troubleshoot errors and demonstrate.
