ELEC 211 Digital Electronics

6 credits
This course covers an introduction to logic fundamentals, numbering systems, codes, gates, truth tables, DeMorgan’s theorem, basic Boolean theorems, and combination logic circuits including PLDs and PGAs. The course combines lecture sessions with intensive hands-on lab experiments.

Prerequisites: ELEC 137  or instructor permission

Quarters Offered: Fall 2017, Spring 2018, Winter 2019

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Distinguish between analog and digital representation
  • Convert from the hexadecimal or octal number system to either the decimal or the binary number system
  • Identify BCD code, ASCII code, and Hexadecimal code
  • Describe the operation of and construct the truth table for the AND, NAND, OR, NOR gates
  • Use Boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, and simulation software as tools to design logic circuits
  • Design simple logic circuits without help of a truth table
  • Write the Boolean expression for the logic gates and combinations of logic gates
  • Construct and analyze the operation of a latch / flip-flop made from NAND or NOR gates
  • Connect shift registers as data transfer circuits
  • Operate flip-flops as used to build frequency dividers, counters and shift registers
  • Use and program a PLD using industry standard software and modeling tools
  • Develop and utilize applications for Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs)
  • Use a JTAG interface to reprogram a CPLD
