Digital electronics are diode and transistor circuits that operate on digital signals. This course introduces the design and analysis of diode circuits, BJT circuit, and MOSFET circuits with a focus on digital logic families. It also examines electronic circuits commonly used to interface sensors or actuators to the computer. Interfacing topics include analog-to-digital signal conditioning using operational amplifiers, digital-to-analog conversion using standard solid-state components, and large-signal biasing of BJT and MOSFET devices.

Computer Engineering students must have a deep understanding of digital logic circuits at all levels of design including system, gate, and transistor. System and gate level design were studied in CE1901, CE1911, and CE1921. Circuit theory and electrical system modeling were introduced in EE2050. Thus, students now have the skillset to fully study, understand, and appreciate the microscopic circuits that make modern life so interesting!
This is the final course in digital electronic design. Students will learn how to:
Laboratory exercises reinforce the lecture material by presenting weekly projects in the design and analysis of digital electronic circuits. The SPICE simulation input language will be used extensively to simulate circuit designs before construction. Circuits will be tested and verified using laboratory equipment including power supplies, function generators, multimeters, and oscilloscopes.
