Electronics is the study of the behavior and movement of electrons in physical components. Analog Circuit Design is concerned with controlling continuously varying voltage and currents, while Digital Circuit Design controls digital signals represented by two discrete voltage or logic levels. The evolution from analog to digital design allowed for greater signal speed and storage capabilities and has revolutionized the world of electronics. Analog electronics forms the base for digital components and Digital Integrated Circuits (ICs), or “chips” control most modern electronic devices, from cellular phones and peripheral “wearables” to computers including CPU and GPUs, appliances, automobiles, and many more! Additionally, the supply chain shortage experienced during the pandemic, especially in the area of chip production, spotlighted the need to develop on-shore manufacturing capabilities, and significant funding has since been allocated by companies and governments world-wide resulting in explosive job opportunities for Digital Design Engineers.
Students completing this second course in the Digital Circuit Design series will be prepared for the subsequent courses in the Digital Circuit Design series as well as have a general working knowledge of combinational logic, sequential logic, state machines, and circuit implementation and test.
