Analog Vs. Digital

Winter Quarter

Analog Vs. Digital
• Analog
• Continuous
• Can take on any values in a given range
• Very susceptible to noise
• Digital
• Discrete
• Can only take on certain values in a given range
• Can be less susceptible to noise

Winter Quarter

The Transistor
• Basic element of digital electronics
• Typically built into integrated circuits
• Can act like a “switch”

Winter Quarter

Boolean Algebra
• Symbolic representation of logic statements
• Uses many basic arithmetic symbols: +, -, (), etc.

Winter Quarter

A collection of many transistors, resistors, and capacitors on a single silicon wafer

The wafer is mounted to a carrier for ease of use and dissipation of heat

Integrated Circuits (Chips)

Winter Quarter

Prototype board for circuit layout

Terminal posts for power (red) and ground (black) connections

Winter Quarter

Back side of Prototyping Board

Metal strips create electrically-connected holes on the front

Winter Quarter

The channel is for ICs so that each pin will have its own independent row of connected holes

Winter Quarter

Light Emitting Diodes (LED)
• Function depends on orientation
• Pass electrical current in one direction only
• Illuminates when current is flowing through it
• Emits light proportional to current through diode
• Must have current limited by a resistor in series

Winter Quarter

Power MOSFETs
• Allows control of high current DC loads by low-voltage digital signals
• With a ‘1’ signal at the gate, current may flow from drain to source. Otherwise, the path is closed

Winter Quarter

Laying Out the Circuit
• Chips “bridge” the gaps
• Devices in adjacent horizontal rows are connected
• Make sure power is turned off until circuit is finished!
