# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Electronics Systems III Task 1190989591

# Develop combinational and sequential logic circuits for an application.

## Definition

Development should be done for an application such as ladder diagram circuits for programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

Development should also include construction of a digital solution to a practical circuit problem by
• defining the problem
• conceptualizing the solution
• selecting the integrated circuit
• acquiring the components
• assembling the circuit.

## Process/Skill Questions

• How are digital design solutions defined?
• What are the constraints to design?
• How are circuit outcomes determined?
• What processes, materials, and research are required to develop a solution?
• How can mathematical and computer simulations assist in developing a solution to the problem?
• What are the ethical and societal effects of circuit development?
• How does a ladder diagram behave differently from a hard-wired control circuit?

## Mathematics

### COM.1

The student will design and apply computer programs to solve practical problems in mathematics arising from business and applications in mathematics.

### COM.2

The student will design, write, document, test, and debug, a computer program.

### COM.6

The student will translate mathematical expressions into programming expressions by declaring variables, writing assignment statements, and using the order of operations.

### DM.8

The student will describe and apply sorting algorithms and coding algorithms used in sorting, processing, and communicating information.

### G.1

The student will use deductive reasoning to construct and judge the validity of a logical argument consisting of a set of premises and a conclusion. This will include
1. identifying the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a conditional statement;
2. translating a short verbal argument into symbolic form; and
3. determining the validity of a logical argument.
