Encoders and Decoders

Encoders and Decoders interactive, online lab
This lab introduces students to the fundamentals of encoders and decoders. Students complete activities in which they use Multisim to build and simulate circuits, including a binary-coded decimal to seven segment display decoder and a priority encoder. Students complete analysis to derive truth tables and complete assessments. The lab is hosted by the online platform Thinkscape.
