PLTW: Digital Electronics
Digital ElectronicsTM is the study of electronic circuits that are used to process and control digital signals. In contrast to analog electronics, where information is represented by a continuously varying voltage, digital signals are represented by two discreet voltages or logic levels. This distinction allows for greater signal speed and storage capabilities and has revolutionized the world electronics. Digital electronics is the foundation of all modern electronic devices such as cellular phones, MP3 players, laptop computers, digital cameras, high definition televisions, etc.
What is Covered
From smart phones to appliances, digital circuits are all around us. This course provides a foundation for students who are interested in electrical engineering, electronics, or circuit design. Students study topics such as combinational and sequential logic and are exposed to circuit design tools used in industry, including logic gates, integrated circuits, and programmable logic devices.
Lesson Plan & Homework
All lesson plans and homework will be posted on this page, so if you need a review or missed a day, you can see what you missed. You can submit homework to me online as well.
Students will have access to their own PLTW site, where they can view their PLTW lessons and submit homework there.
