IE 120 - Digital Electronics

Credit Hours: 3

Logic concepts using switches; binary and hex numbers; logic gates, drivers and interfaces; encoders and decoders; flip-flops, registers and counters; a simple adder; RAM and ROM memory and mass storage. Experiments include: simple logic circuits using switches and LEDs; integrated-circuit logic gates, encoders and decoders; registers and counters and a simple adder.

Course Outcomes
At the completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • perform calculations and base conversions in the binary, decimal and hexadecimal number systems;
  • relate logic diagrams to Boolean expressions, truth tables and state tables;
  • breadboard and troubleshoot digital logic circuits;
  • analyze combinational and sequential logic circuits;
  • relate IEEE and MIL-STD logic symbols to their logic function;
  • identify and explain the behavior of combinational circuits including encoders, decoders, tri-state buffers, arithmetic circuits, multiplexers and demultiplexers;
  • identify and explain the behavior of sequential circuits including latches, flip-flops, registers and counters; and
  • prepare a laboratory report based on data collected from tests on digital systems.
