2016-17 Course Catalog - 82


EET 128 (4 credits)
Combinational Digital Logic (w/Lab)

Basic digital electronic concepts are covered including introduction
to digital machines, number systems (binary and hexadecimal),
binary arithmetic, digital signals and switching, Boolean algebra,
logic gates (AND, OR, NAND, NOR, XOR, XNOR), logic gate
specifications, and basic combinational logic circuits. Includes an
introduction to and programming of programmable logic devices
(PLDs). Circuits are built from schematics and test equipment
(DVM, logic analyzer, digital signal generator, and circuit
simulation software) is used to learn the operation of the circuits.

EET 158 (4 credits)
Solid State Devices I (w/Lab)

Diodes, rectifiers, power supplies, regulators, clippers, clampers,
multipliers, bipolar junction transistors, and transistor amplifiers
are studied. Students build and test diode circuits, power supplies,
switching circuits, and amplifiers.
Prerequisites: EET 108 and EET 118

EET 168 (4 credits)
Solid State Devices II (w/Lab)

Field-effect transistors, operational amplifiers, thyristors, optoisolators, and solid state relays are studied. Drivers, buffers,
interfacing, pre-amps, amplifiers, active filters, mixers, oscillators,
and phase controllers are built and tested.
Prerequisite: EET 158

EET 178 (4 credits)
Sequential Digital Logic (w/Lab)

Comprehensive coverage of combinational and sequential logic
circuits including adders, subtractors, flip-flops, shift registers,
counters, digital multiplexors/ de-multiplexors, and A/D and D/A
conversions. Electronic equipment schematics are reviewed to
develop technician-level skills. Circuits are built from schematics
and test equipment (DVM, logic analyzer, digital signal generator,
and circuit simulation software) is used to learn the operation of
the circuits.
Prerequisite: EET 128

EET 217 (4 credits)
Microprocessors/Microcontrollers (w/Lab)

This course is an introduction to the basic architecture and
instruction sets of microprocessors and microcontrollers. Learning
activities include basic assembly language programming, working
with programming IDE environment, software simulation tools,
hardware emulation tools, and logic analysis of hardware signals.
Both Harvard architecture and von Neumann architecture devices
are covered.
Prerequisites: EET 128 and EET 178

EET 222 (4 credits)
Interfacing and Programming Microprocessors (w/Lab)

This course involves the interfacing of basic input and output
devices at the chip level to microprocessors and microcontrollers
and also includes their support ICs and common peripheral devices.
Learning activities include interfacing, programming (at assembly
language level) and modifying existing assembly and C language
82 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

code. Test equipment-including DSOs, DVMs, logic analyzers,
and data analyzers-is used in support of these activities.
Prerequisite: EET 217

EET 234 (4 credit)
Introduction to Visual Programming and Data
Acquisition (w/Lab)

This course provides an introduction to visual programming
language concepts by using LabVIEW and/ or Visual Basic based
programming languages. Students gain insight into the concepts
involved in designing programs in a visual environment and also
learn about data acquisition and control systems. Topics covered
and assignments are related to the data acquisition and control
environment on PC-based computers. The course is a mixture of
theory-based concepts, programming assignments, and device
interfacing.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of 1st year EET courses

EET 258 (4 credits)
Automation and Control Systems with PLCs I (w/Lab)

This course handles electronic topics from an industrial viewpoint
and deals with actual control systems utilizing programmable
logic controllers (PLCs), IEC-61131 programming concepts, and
industrial circuits. It also serves as introduction to process control,
industrial process techniques, and instrumentation. During this
course, the PLC is used as the control device where possible and
therefore PLC knowledge is advanced in both interfacing and
programming areas.
Prerequisites: EET 108, EET 118, and EET 128

EET 268 (4 credits)
Automation and Control Systems with PLCs II (w/Lab)

This course introduces mechanical, pneumatic, and photoelectric
transducer devices used to convert all types of stimuli to electronic
pulses and their use in industrial control circuits. Most activities
use the PLC as the control element. Advanced ladder programming
skills and higher-level language IEC-61131 programming is
also covered. Industrial networking topics for control systems
include RS232, TCP/IP, DH+, Modbus, DeviceNet, ASi, and other
industrial networks. Motor and motion control topics include
AC, DC, servo, and stepper motor operation. Motor and motion
control systems are put into practical use and discussed as part of
robotic systems.

EET 278 (4 credits)
Data Acquisition and Control Project

Students create a data acquisition and control system of their
own design. The project incorporates topics from all semesters.
Programming and interfacing are implemented with an
automation emphasis. Aspects include design, construction,
testing, and documentation.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of first three semesters of EET
courses
Co-requisites: EET 258 and EET 268
