Part V: Circuit Boards & Systems

Electronic components like integrated circuits are incredibly useful - but not when they're in isolation. The unsung hero of the electronics system world is the circuit board, which connects everything together. In this session, we will discover the origin of printed circuit board technology;...

Part IV: Programmable Devices

In this session, we consider the earliest forms of programmable logic devices (PLDs), including PROMs, PLAs, PALs, and GALs, many of which are still in use to this day. Next we consider the evolution from simple PLDs (SPLDs) to complex PLDs (CPLDs). Also, we consider the problems with ASICs/SoCs...

Part III: Chips & Packages

In this session, we discover different types of ICs, including analog, digital, mixed-signal, and radio frequency (RF). We will also introduce the concepts of microprocessors (MPUs), microcontrollers (MCUs), programmable devices (SPLDs, CPLDs, and FPGAs), and ASICs/ASSPs/SoCs. Different forms of...

Part II: Analog vs. Digital

In this session, we will discover the difference between the analog and digital domains; the wide variety of analog sensor technologies that are available; the ways in which we can implement multi-value digital systems; the ways we sample analog values and convert them into their digital...

Part I: Fundamental Concepts

We introduce fundamental concepts, starting with protons, neutrons, and electrons, leading to molecules, crystals, etc., which leads to the difference between conductors and insulators. We consider voltage and current, resistance and resistors, capacitance and capacitors, and inductance and...
