Discrete semiconductors, linear, and digital electronics are studied from the standpoint of the electrical-mechanical interface. Concepts of sensors and transducers; amplifiers; DACs and ADCs; semiconductor control devices; and integrated logic circuits account for approximately 80% of the course. The remainder is spent on learning the application of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) using ladder logic.
