Introduction to Boolean Algebra and Logic Circuits
This online engineering PDH course presents an introduction to Boolean variables, operators, equations, and the analysis of logic circuits for those who are unfamiliar with this subject. It covers the basics of Boolean algebra, simplification of equations using familiar algebraic techniques, identities unique to Boolean algebra, and the generation of Boolean equations from schematics using the standard symbols for logic gates.
Boolean variables and equations are used extensively with digital systems to determine an outcome based on an occurrence of events. For example, inputs which represent a system's normal and/or abnormal operating conditions can be combined in an equation to determine if equipment needs to be automatically started or stopped, if an operator needs to be alerted to the conditions, or if some other action needs to be taken.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to engineers working with control systems, such as programmable logic controllers, or other digital systems, and who must program these systems. It is also applicable to those engineers who must write or review specifications for the automatic control of equipment.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Knowing the values of Boolean variables and their relation to input and output devices
- Understanding the types of, symbols used for, and the input/output relationships of Boolean operators
- Analyzing Boolean equations
- Generating Boolean equations from logic circuits
