Required: Lessons In Electric Circuits, Volume VI . Experiments

By Tony R. Kuphaldt


www.allaboutcircuits.com


Optional: Beginning Digital Electronics Through Projects. Although this book is optional, I am using it (and its notation) for the development of Boolean algebra, truth tables, gates (AND, OR, NAND, etc.) and hexadecimal and binary systems. The corresponding information in the online textbook is at

http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_4/index.html. See http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/worksheets/bin_math.html for example of worksheet we might use.


Course description: From catalogue: “Introduction to the interfacing of scientific instruments with a digital computer for automatic data handling capability. Topics will include introduction to digital electronics, architecture of the computer, memory, data transmission and peripheral devices.” Hands on experimentation with electrical circuits and equipment will prepare students for engineering school or provide basis for understanding digital computers, so it is especially appropriate for computer science majors and 3-2 engineering students.


Course content:

  • Computer circuits (i.e. digital)

  • Analog Circuits (as much as needed to support the digital aspect)

  • Boolean algebra, truth tables, gates (AND, OR, NAND, etc.) and hexadecimal and binary systems.

  • Microcomputer hardware (RAM, ROM, bus, etc.)

  • Microprocessors


Some Experiments and concepts

  • Voltage Divider

  • Transistor switching

  • Half and full adders

  • Gates (NAND, XOR, etc.)

  • Amplifiers (Transistors and chip—the 741 operational amplifier)

  • Integrated circuits (LM35 temperature sensing)

  • Microprocessors


General Education connections:

    • Serve those in need and facilitate social justice—technical know-how can be shared just like tangible goods.

    • Employ concepts and methods from different academic disciplines—this course is definitely integrative across physics, math, and computer science.

    • Use research skills and information technologies.

    • Recognize lifestyles, traditions, and rituals of diverse cultures—electronics and computing is worldwide. Sensitivity to other cultures is a business must.


Grading categories:

  • Test, quizzes, and final : 40%

  • Projects: 50%

  • Initiative: 10%


Role of Attendance:

Absences will affect the part of the grade labeled “initiative.” Laboratory attendance is mandatory, but one missed lab can be made up within a week of the lab time.


Grading Scale:

  • 100% > A > 90%

  • 90% > B > 80%

  • 80% > C > 70%

  • 70% > D > 60%

  • < 60% F


There are subdivisions within the grade ranges, approximately dividing the ranges into equal thirds for the B, C, and D grades. There are also A, A-, B+, etc., divisions. Since the instructor will be looking for statistical clusters, these divisions will not necessarily be arithmetically exact.

Plagiarism/Academic Integrity:

From the Waynesburg College Catalog:

“The principles of truth and honesty are recognized as fundamental to a community of teachers and scholars. The College has a responsibility for maintaining academic integrity to protect the quality of education, research, and co-curricular activities on our campus and to protect those who depend on our integrity... This means that all academic work will be done by the student to whom it is assigned without unauthorized aid of any kind.”
