Unit #4-10

Learning Outcome

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • build an NOT circuit with an IC chip



  • go over "NOT Circuit using an IC chip"
  • go over how to "make your own" IC chip
    • search for "generic IC" and select the one that is double sided
    • then change the "Labels" on the pins


    • nil

Daily Assignment

  • circuit - "NOT gate with IC Chip"
    • draw the diagram in Fritzing
      • ensure you give the file a proper name (like the title of the circuit above)
      • ensure you include 4 notes, on both the schematic and the breadboard views:
        1. the "Truth Table"
        2. the course code, your name and the title
        3. the Input(s)
        4. the Output(s)
      • ensure the wires in the schematic view are properly laid out
      • save the *.fzz file not only to your computer but also to your Google Drive
      • export the breadboard and schematic view and upload them to your notebook
  • build the circuit on your breadboard
    • once working, call me over to check
    • take a picture of your completed breadboard and upload it to your notebook
  • Note: you should be uploading 3 things to your notebook:
    1. breadboard drawing
    2. schematic drawing
    3. picture of completed real world breadboard


    • if you finish early, move to next circuit

NOT gate symbol

What a chip looks like and how to place it on your breadboard


What the inside of the chip would look like, if you were using symbols

DON'T FORGET: you always need the chip attached to power (Vcc) and ground (GND) or it will not work. It would be like not plugging in the toaster!
