ECET 17900 - Introduction To Digital Systems
Credit Hours: 3.00.
This course introduces computing systems and defines the major classes of computing devices. Sequential and concurrent operations, along with logic and control structures, are covered. Knowledge of fundamental computing principles is discovered. Common software tools are used to create, test, and debug systems. Systems are constructed from standard blocks with a focus on subsystem operation and performance, troubleshooting/debugging and testing. Common applications of embedded systems are introduced.
1. Describe the major classes of computing devices and the primary applications of each.
2. Describe and distinguish the basic building blocks of conditional and unconditional logic.
3. Convert numbers between number systems (bases) and compute arithmetic operations.
4. Describe and distinguish the relationships between concurrent and sequential events.
5. Describe and distinguish the primary tools used to create, test, and debug computing system hardware and software components.
6. Construct hardware and software components comprised of logical building blocks from given requirements.
7. Troubleshoot hardware and software systems comprised of logical building blocks by using logical deduction.
8. Apply embedded microcomputer systems to solve problems.
