Description

In this course, you will learn about design problems based on the conversion of a triangular input voltage to a sinusoidal output voltage. Op-amp circuits based on positive feedback, and also, the application of the Schmitt trigger will also be covered in this course. Then, you will learn about the advantages of the Schmitt trigger, as well as the principle of operation of a sinusoidal oscillator.

Then, this course will teach you about the basic logical operations, simplifying logical functions, and also, the use of Karnaugh maps to minimize a given logical function. An introduction to the binary system as well the operations of the multiplexer will also be covered. Lastly, you will learn about commonly used blocks called commercial integrated circuits (ICs).

This course is helpful for learners who want to understand the basic operations of digital circuits. The course will also be beneficial when you want to learn about the binary system of numbers, as well as commercial ICs. Begin this course now to understand the principle of operation of a sinusoidal oscillator.
