EET 260 - Digital Electronics
Study of number systems, logic gates and families (TTL/CMOS), logic design and simplification techniques, digital black box design, Karnaugh maps, standard circuits such as counters, shift registers and decoders, Boolean algebra, programmable logic, analog to digital interfacing, computer arithmetic, digital data transmission, memories, and microcomputer basics. Appropriate laboratory exercises provide hands-on experience building and troubleshooting many types of digital circuits. Electronic circuit simulation software is also used.
Prerequisite: EET 115 Introduction to Digital Electronics, EET 150 Electronic Devices
