Explores binary and hexadecimal number systems, truth tables, and logic devices. Outcomes include the simplification of logic expressions using Boolean algebra, DeMorgan's theorems, and the use of simulation software (MultiSim) to solve combinational logic circuits. Students will do analysis of combination logic circuits and their operations, and examine the characteristics of TTL and CMOS digital ICs. Students will also be introduced to the fundamentals of latches, flip-flops and other related devices, which are the building blocks to microcontrollers and microprocessor storage devices. PBASIC programming is used in conjunction with a Parallax BS2 Microcontroller to develop proficiency in building and troubleshooting digital systems. Hands-on laboratory experience is used to enhance theoretical concepts and develop troubleshooting skills.
