Building Logic Gates with Transistors

This is a continuation of previous blogs about logic gates. Earlier you read about logic gates and their functions. Then you read about how to code logic gates in Verilog, VHDL, and C. Now its time to learn about creating logic gates with transistors. After reading all of these posts you’ll have learned about logic gate theory, coding logic gates in both hardware and software, and the physical hardware design of logic gates.

The Analog Parts Kit

The Analog Parts Kit contains a large selection of components perfect for creating a wide variety of useful circuits & devices. Featuring Analog Devices components, the kit includes transistors, resistors, capacitors, diodes, sensors, and variety of useful ICs, including op amps, converters, and regulators. Finally, the kit also comes with an assortment of lead wires, a solderless breadboard, and a screwdriver.

Serial Monitor Communication

MPIDE comes with a nice serial monitor where you are able to print out values that your system board has measured onto your computer screen. But if you are able to print things onto your computer screen, wouldn’t it make sense if the chipKIT board also accepted and processed values that we typed into the serial monitor? It would make a lot of sense, which is probably why we can do just that. Let’s find out how.

Fun With the Project Box

We all know how much of a hassle it can be to safely transport your electronics, and let’s face it, the protective cases that many of our boards previously came in were flimsy, unaccommodating, and caused a great deal of stress for our customers. Well, we’ve responded to all of your feedback and I’m here to talk about our new Project Boxes!
