Digital Electronics ENG746

Hobart

Introduction

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 and introduce embedded system development. The unit introduces students to the properties and characteristics of digital electronics and extends these to the design and implementation of digital circuits and microcontroller programming. Students will gain an understanding of basic digital systems and an understanding of how such systems can form part of larger technical systems. Fundamental skills will be gained in the analysis and implementation of digital electronic circuits and systems. Topics covered include: Combinational logic. Sequential logic. Microprocessor fundamentals. The unit prepares students to undertake future studies in advanced Electronic/Communications Engineering.
