Course Description

Electronic Technology - ELECT 219

Digital Logic Circuits (2-2) 4 Cr. Hrs.

Course Description

This course introduces students to Boolean algebra (emphasizing NAND and NOR) and various medium scale integrated circuits like exclusive or encoders, decoders, multiplexers, adders, counters and shift registers. Also explored are memory (core, RAM and ROM) and bidirectional line drivers. The laboratory work coincides with experiments utilizing digital integrated circuits.


(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
