Course Description

Digital electronics is the foundation of all microprocessor-based systems found in computers, robots, automobiles, and industrial control systems.

This course applies to solving vocational mathematical problems involving number systems used in digital electronics and the implementation of logic circuits with a minimum of logic gates. These are used in the assembly and analysis of simple digital electronic circuits. The design, operation, and troubleshooting of digital circuits are studied.

Laboratory experiments provide hands-on experience with the devices and circuits studied in the classroom.

Overview of Assessment

A student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent.

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks. Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including class exercises, quizzes, written tests, and practical exercises.

Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
