# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Electronics Systems II Task 1755611100

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Construct logic circuits to meet design-brief goals.

Definition

Construction should include
  • identifying the problem and ideal outcome
  • brainstorming possible solutions
  • using a breadboard to simulate, test, and troubleshoot the solution
  • creating a logic diagram to correctly connect the IC
  • designing two or more IC chips/logic gates
  • designating a power supply, a load, and a conductor.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What is the path of current flow inside the logic circuit?
  • What troubleshooting steps might be needed during the design process?
  • What are the steps of a typical design process when conceptualizing a solution?
