Analogue & Digital Systems Trainer



For students to understand the connection between simple logic circuits and microprocessor systems they need an appreciation of medium scale integration devices. The CK342 Analogue and Digital System has been designed to give the user experience of many of the popular electronic systems building blocks. It allows the investigation of individual elements and then shows the effect of connecting them together in different configurations. The system comprises two unpowered modules. Module A, Digital Systems Trainer; introduces analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion from basic principles. As more digital systems are used to control analogue devices, then a good understanding of analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion is needed. CK342B provides a background in this area, and extends the range of work available using Module A; it cannot be used on its own. The CK342 Analogue & Digital System is part of our Digital Systems and Computing range. To understand the principles of logic circuits we recommend the use of the LT345 Mk2 Logic Tutor or CK341 Advanced Logic Principles prior to studying this equipment. All the workboards in our Electricity and Electronics range are presented using an open printed circuit board construction and can be conveniently housed in the Systems Storage Rack SSR1000.
