Digital Electronics for the Inventor
This hands-on course challenges students to assess, design, build, test, and demonstrate a digital electronics project from scratch. Topics covered include digital logic design, circuit theory, programmable devices, and basic microelectronics. Students will engage in guided exercises and small-scale projects to put theory into practice. Student work culminates with an original design they create in small teams. Through the team projects, students will develop skills in project management, prototyping, protocol and functional testing, quality assurance, and device deployment.
Students will learn:
- Engineering design process
- Digital logic design
- Microelectronics, including programmable devices
- Engineering ethics
