A Digital Electronics Course Using Cplds For Manufacturing Engineers

The challenge faced by ECE instructors who teach a one-semester digital electronics course in a manufacturing engineering curriculum is to present a useful fraction of the material to students whose primary interest is not electronics. We have developed a course which accomplishes this goal with the use of complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) and a term project that involves a robot arm. The term project provides an organizing purpose for the presentation of more conventional digital electronics material earlier in the course.
