Video Portal into our Digital Electronics Course:
In this course, students learn the systematic approach used by engineers to design the electronics we use every day. Students become familiar with the engineering design and troubleshooting techniques used in the electronics field through the study of the circuitry used to process and control digital signals. Students use computer simulation software to design and test digital circuits, such as those used in watches, cameras, and calculators, and build working prototypes using SSI and MSI chips and programmable logic devices. In all of these projects, students learn how machines "think." Students who earn qualifying grades may be eligible to receive engineering college credit. This course fulfills the graduation requirement for fine and/or practical arts.
