Addendum to Course Description


Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon successful completion students should be able to:

  1. Convert signals from analog to digital and digital to analog. 
  2. Build and simulate electrical digital systems circuits and perform measurements with electronic test equipment.
  3. Write instructions in an integrated development environment (IDE) to simulate data manipulation between different memory types.   
  4. 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
