13 Basic Electronic Systems All practical electronic systems have three distinct parts: INPUT The input to the system detects some form of input, this can be a physical property like light or temperature, or something as simple as a switch. Sources of information such as CD’s and software are also inputs. PROCESS Any electronic system will do something with the information it receives from an input and use it to control an output. This is called the process of the system. OUTPUT Output devices either provide information (displays etc) or perform a useful function such as creating light, heat or sound

23 Logic SystemsLogic systems are often used in system design as they are much easier to understand than full circuit diagrams. They work with digital signals and can be either on or off. Logic level 1 = on Logic level 0= off We use logic gates to achieve a desired output depending on the condition of one or more inputs.
24 Logic Gates There are 3 types of Logic Gate: NOT Gate NOT gates are the simplest gate. They have one input and one output and simply invert the signalAND GateAND gates have two inputs which must both be at 1 to get a 1 output, otherwise they will give a 0 output.OR GateOR gates will give a 1 output if either or both of the two inputs are at a 1.Input AOutput1Input AInput BOutput1Input AInput BOutput1

31 Potential divider circuits Also and more simply known as a resistors in series circuit.Remember, in a series circuit the Current is the same at all points;Is = I1 =I2The Voltage splits between the resistors; Vs = V1 + V2VsAAV1V2
32 Potential divider circuits In Electronics they are usually shown vertically.These are often used as control circuits in electronics.The Voltage across R2 also goes to the transistor and determines whether it will switch on or not.Input+5VResistor 1Resistor 20V
33 What is a potential divider circuit? It is a circuit that has 2 resistors connected in series.The potential (voltage) splits between the resistors.We will now use the croc physics program to investigate how the potential splits depending on the size of resistance of the resistors.ConclusionThe bigger the resistance the bigger the share of the potential.
34 The TransistorA transistor is a voltage operated switch, commonly used to connect an analogue input (such as an LDR) to a digital output (such as an LED). When the voltage at the base reaches about 0.7V, the transistor allows current to flow from the emitter to the collector and switches on.basecollectoremitter
35 Practical WorksheetsThere are 5 stations, and there should be no more than 1 group at any one station at a time.Have a play with the circuits changing the resistance of the resistors either manually or by the environmental factors (light or temperature).Carefully observe how the transistor acts in each circuit.Take any notes and draw any diagrams carefully and neatly in your jotter.Try to explain why the LED is being turned on and off.
