# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Electronics Systems III Task 1190989594

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Troubleshoot digital circuits.


Troubleshooting should include
  • evaluating the characteristics, operation, and applications of integrated circuits
  • using standard test equipment and special instruments (e.g., logic probes, logic and signature analyzers).

Process/Skill Questions

  • How do actual and simulated circuit characteristics differ?
  • How can circuit theory be verified using test instruments and computer-assisted simulation?
  • How can test instruments facilitate electronic equipment troubleshooting?
