Unit 3: NAND/NOR Design
Due: October 20, 2023
The use of the “NAND” and “NOR” logic gates to build and simplify larger digital circuits using a cool application of abstract algebra!
Unit 4: Displays
Due: November 10, 2023
How 7-segment displays of different kinds can be controlled in a digital circuit and used to share and organize information.
Unit 5: The Birthday Problem
Due: December 1, 2023
Here we bring all the ideas of AOI/NAND/NOR logic together with displays to make a birthday counter!
Unit 7: Digital Logic
Due: January 26, 2024
Use more complex digital structures to build a cool digital circuit for counting. It’s not as easy as it sounds!
Unit 8: Flip Flops & Counters
Due: February 16, 2024
This unit is all about an IC chip called a “Flip Flop” and how it can be used to save single bits of information and make counters.
Unit 9: Synchronous Counters
Due: March 8, 2024
Here we learn more about different kinds of counters and how we can combine large single-task circuits into even larger ones
Unit 10: State Machines
Due: April 5, 2024
Next we get to learn how digital circuits are used to control physical machines as we build a few devices that run on digital circuits.
Unit 11: Microcontrollers
Due: April 26, 2024
For those that haven’t seen them, this unit gives us an introduction to microntrollers like the Arduino!
Unit 12: Individual Projects
Due: May 10, 2024
Here you get the chance to apply everything you’ve learned about engineering to plan, design, and build your own project!
