Digital Electronics with Lab II

This certificate course expands on Digital Electronics I to include gates, numbering systems, flip flop circuits and more. Includes instructor support and lab.

Course Description
This course is the 2nd part of the Digital Electronics series. It is recommended that you take Digital Electronics Part I before enrolling.

Learn about advanced digital topics and start building complex digital circuits. Topics like logic gates, digital integrated circuits, flipflops, counters, code converters, multiplexers, demultiplexers, CMOS digital logic circuits, digital interfacing, ROMs, PROMs, PLAs, and microprocessors are covered.

The laboratory portion of the course elaborates on these subjects with hands-on experiments to further explain them.

Instructor Support & Certificate
Learn from the comfort of your own home and study when it's convenient for you - there are no time limits. Includes instructor support and you can take your exams online on our e-grade web site.

If you ever need help with your course you can call or e-mail our staff of highly trained instructors for immediate attention or you can join the chat room and ask a question.

Best of all, you'll earn a Certificate of Completion in Digital Electronics Advanced Applications suitable for framing when you're finished!

Course Objectives 
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Explain the differences between digital and analog systems
2. Understand and work with AND, OR, NAND and NOR gates
3. Work with binary, octal, and hexadecimal number system
4. Prove Boolean equations through experimentation and understand positive & negative logic
5. Use fanout and specification charts to aid in the design of circuits
6. Explain the function of various flipflop circuits.
7. Properly design digital circuits, and reduce them to their absolute minimum design equation
8. Explain the function and uses of oneshots, astables, and Schmitt triggers
9. Understand how flip flops can be used to count and operation of asynchronous counters
10. Use multiplexers and demultiplexers in circuit designs
