ELTN 132 builds upon knowledge gained in ELTN 130 Introduction to Electronics. Logic circuit design concepts are introduced within the context of their role in microprocessor operations. Topics covered include design and analysis of digital, combinatorial logic, and sequential circuits. Minimization techniques are explored using Boolean algebra and Karnaugh maps. Interfacing requirements, truth tables, multiplexers, demultiplexers, A/D converters and DAC's are explained. Computer arithmetic and preparation of assembly language programs are studied. Laboratory experience includes applications of advanced digital circuits and microprocessor-based systems. 

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

  1. Effectively communicate technical information verbally and in writing using appropriate electronics terminology.
  2. Demonstrate the use of critical thinking skills to evaluate electronics problems at the appropriate level.
  3. Analyze electronic digital and control circuits and formulate ideas and concepts leading to their understanding.
