Course Lessons

Lesson 1

Digital Output Devices

This lesson explores the wide range of digital output devices and play technologies, each designed for particular applications, from basic bar LEDs to dynamic, full-colour displays.

Lesson 2

Seven-Segment Displays

Learn about the seven-segment displays' evolution and applications, covering common anode/cathode configurations and scanning techniques.

Lesson 3

Analog Signals

In this lesson, you will learn analog signals in embedded systems, their conversion to digital via ADCs, the maths behind it and put that into practice through a sensor exercise.

Lesson 4

Introduction to Ohm’s Law

The Ohm's Law is a fundamental subject in electronics. To lay the foundation, this lesson covers the concepts of voltage, current and resistance before explaining their relationship.
