Digital Trainer board

  1. Dec 9, 2016 #1
    Hi everyone,
    I have a project for the semester which I have just concluded. We will be testing the board early next week to see if it works and I am expected to explain how the board works, and I don't really know much about it. Can someone please help? I am currently writing a technical report on it. Your help will be appreciated.

    Welcome to the PF. :smile:

    Wait, what? This is your project, and you can't explain it? Um, that's a bit strange, IMO.

    Of course, I can explain to some extent, but I just feel I should be able to do better. Like I said I am currently writing a report on it, so I understand some bit. Just looking for some more info. It's my first year in college.

    Great! Please explain it to us in deatil.

    What are the different sections meant to show? Is this a 2-layer, 4-layer or 1-layer PCB? Please post the schematic to help us help you...

    This is a patch board given to students to wire up different circuits and learn how they work.

    As an example, you could wire switch 1 to led 1 and connect power to the board and then when you flip the switch the led goes on.

    I'm not sure how many layers, but here is the schematics given to us. Thanks

    Can you explain the circuit in the upper left?

    It's the LM317 voltage regulator

    No, that's in the upper right. i'm asking about the logic circuits in the upper left... :smile:

    I am not sure about the logic circuit or how they work.

    I'm sure they covered them in class...

    Thanks for your contribution. It is appreciated.

    No. If we did I won't be asking for help.

    That's pretty hard to believe. Try Googling cross-couple NAND circuit. That should get you started...

    What was the "project" - did you build this from a Kit? It seems pretty sensationalized - and you should be able to look up each item easily. You can't find anything?

    I have everything sorted out now. Just needed some more info to equip myself should question arise during testing of the board. The board was actually tested today and it worked perfectly well. I was also able to defend the project. Will be handing in the report tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who showed concern.
