PLTW – Digital Electronics - 9751

Grade: 10, 11, 12 — Credits: 2

Digital Electronics is the study of electronic circuits that are used to process and control digital signals. Topics covered include logic gates, Base 2, 10, and 16 number systems, BCD, Boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, flip-flops, counters, programmable logic devices, microcontrollers, and other related digital devices. Hands-on laboratory experiments, which augment the learning process, are an integral part of this course. The labs demonstrate real world implementation of otherwise abstract academic concepts and provide valuable experience in breadboarding, testing and debugging circuits.
