Course DescriptionExplores basic digital electronics concepts. Includes number systems, Boolean algebra, logic simplification, and circuit troubleshooting. Includes analysis of digital logic using digital circuit simulations and basic spreadsheet skills. Prerequisites/concurrent: MTH 111, EET 101, and EET 111. Audit available.
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon successful completion students should be able to:
- Use basic electrical digital systems concepts and theorems to analyze circuits.
- Build and simulate electrical digital systems circuits and perform measurements with electronic test equipment.
- Solve problems in electronics by applying programmatic thought and using calculators and computer applications designed for data manipulation.
- Write technical reports using collected experiment data.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Assessment methods are to be determined by the instructor. Typically, in-class quizzes, online quizzes, exams and weekly homework assignments will be used. Laboratory assessment will be by reports and/or practical skills testing.
