TermDefinition
Analog A way of representing some physical quantity, such as temperature or velocity, by a proportional continuous voltage or current. An analog voltage or current can have any value within a defined range.
AND Gate Digital circuit that implements the AND operation. The output of this circuit is HIGH only if all of its inputs are HIGH.
Breadboard A circuit board for wiring temporary circuits, usually used for prototypes or laboratory work.
Capacitor An electrical device used to store electrical charge.
Clock Digital signal in the form of a rectangular pulse train or a square wave.
Combinational Logic Digital circuitry in which an output is derived from the combination of inputs, independent of the order in which they are applied.
Conventional Current The direction of current flow associated with positive charge in motion. The current flow direction is from a positive to negative potential, which is in the opposite direction of electron flow.
Current A movement of electrical charges around a closed path or circuit.
Cycle A series of events that are regularly repeated in the same order
Datasheet A printed specification giving details of the pin configuration, electrical properties, and mechanical profile of an electronic device.
Digital A way of representing a physical quantity by a series of binary numbers. A digital representation can have only specific discrete values.
Digital Waveform A series of logic 1s and 0s plotted as a function of time.
Digital Multi-Meter(DMM) A piece of test equipment used to measure voltage, current, and resistance in an electronic circuit.
Dual In-Line Package (DIP) A very common IC package with two parallel rows of pins intended to be inserted into a socket of through holes drilled in a printed circuit board.
Engineering Notation A floating point system in which numbers are expressed as products consisting of a number greater than one multiplied by an appropriate power of ten that is some multiple of three.
