Upon successful completion of Electronics 1, the apprentice is able to identify schematic symbols for North American and European basic logic gates; describe the operation of basic logic gates; use basic logic gates to create digital logic circuits; state Boolean equations for simple logic gates; design and test combination logic circuits; describe the voltage requirements for TTL and CMOS logic circuits; demonstrate the use of R.S. and D type flip-flop; use a logic probe to troubleshoot a digital circuit; demonstrate procedures for soldering and de-soldering; state the standard resistor colour code; connect resistors in series, parallel and combination circuits; describe the properties of N and P type semiconductor materials; explain current, voltage and biasing requirements for silicon and germanium diodes, and LED's demonstrate the operation of a bipolar diode; identify the symbols for and describe the operation and biasing for NPN and PNP Bipolar transistors; demonstrate how a transistor can be used as a switch; demonstrate the common applications for an opto-coupler.
