An introduction to analog and digital electronics. Students use standard notation and learn the logic of circuit design and logic gates. Families of logic design including AND-OR-Invert, NAND and NOR Logic, and combinational logic systems are used to build lab experiments. All engineering students at the university learn basic digital electronics. This course is preparation for that class. Digital Electronics is designated as an Advanced Course by the Texas State Board of Education. Counts as a math credit and must be taken with Engineering Design and Problem Solving - Digital Electronics.
