Digital Electronics ENG233
The unit is directed at building on the fundamentals of electrical circuits acquired in the first year of the course to provide
technical competence in digital electronics.
The unit introduces students to the propert ies and characteristics of digital electronics. Students will gain an
understanding of basic digital systems and an understanding of how such systems can form part of larger technical
Fundamental skills will be gained in the analysis and implementation of digital electronic circuits and systems.
Topics covered include:
The unit prepares students to undertake future studies in Electronic/Communications Engineering.
