Prerequisite: Principles of Engineering
This foundation course introduces students to applied digital logic, a key element of careers in engineering and engineering technology. This course explores the smart circuits found in watches, calculators, video games, and computers. Students use industry- standard computer software in testing and analyzing digital circuitry. They design circuitry to solve problems, export their designs to a printed circuit auto-routing program that generates printed circuit boards, and uses appropriate components to build their designs. Students will cover fundamentals, number systems, gates, Boolean algebra, computational logic circuit design, adding, flip-flops, shift registers and counters, families and specifications, and microprocessors.
