Digital Electronics (EE 235) Course Details

Course Name: Digital Electronics
Code: EE 235
Pre-requisite Course(s):
Objective: •Understand the principles of digital electronics and abstractions on which the design of digital systems is based. These include TTL and CMOS digital systems. •Use these engineering abstractions to analyze and design simple digital circuits. •Build digital logic gates and take measurements of such parameters as propagation delay, noise margins, fan-out using tools such as trainer board CADET, Multimeter Fluke 179, Variable dc power supply Goodwill GPC-3030, function generator, oscilloscopes, digital ICs, etc. Compare the measurements with the behavior predicted by mathematic models and explain the discrepancies. •Understand the relationship between the mathematical representation of circuit behavior and corresponding real-life effects. •Obtain V-I characteristics of TTL and CMOS inverters and determine their noise margins. •Understand the operation of various memory units. •Implement multivibrators/timing circuits of specified duty cycles. •Understand the principle and operation of BiCMOS and GaAs circuits. •Learn VLSI fabrication techniques. •Appreciate the practical significance of the systems developed in the course.
