Description
The objective of the ANDY board is to provide the student with an easy to use, mobile,
and multipurpose learning tool that can be used to develop many aspects of circuit design and
analysis. The ANDY board is designed to support a rich, hands-on experience in digital logic,
DC circuit analysis, and AC circuit analysis through the use of take home labs and design
projects. The board provides plenty of breadboard space for students who may need to do more
than one lab concurrently for different courses. Because of its small size and power supply, the
board is mobile, providing the student with the opportunity to work on experiments wherever she
or he feels comfortable. The ANDY board provides a more relaxed environment to learn
material, which leads to better comprehension.

A&D Board User Manual and Test Procedure
Operation
The circuit diagram of the ANDY board is shown in Appendix A. The silk screen of the board is
shown in Figure 1. The six different sections of the board that are used to connect to the
breadboard are outlined in red: the power sources; the digital logic probes; the digital switches;
the digital pulsers; the digital clock; and the function generator. Each section has labeled socket
headers associated with it. Socket headers are the black boxes surrounding the breadboards into
which wires can be inserted.
Figure 1: Silk screen layout of the RSR/VT A&D (ANDY) board
The function and operation of each section of the board is discussed in the following paragraphs:
A) Power Sources
These socket headers are labeled “+5V”, “+9V”, and “-9V”. Any of the 4 holes on a socket
header may be used to connect a power source to a circuit on the breadboard.
The ANDY board contains two common ground socket headers: one between the +9V and 9V socket headers and another between the clock and the function generator socket headers.
The common ground will be used as the reference node for the circuits designed on the
breadboard.
v. 2.2, © 2005-2006 by R. B. Lineberry, W. C. Headley, & R. W. Hendricks
p. 4
A&D Board User Manual and Test Procedure
It is common practice to connect each power source to a breadboard bus. The busses are
labeled with a red line to represent the ‘+’ busses and a blue line to represent the ‘-‘ busses.
These busses provide a convenient and effective method to distribute power to your circuit
For advanced users, the raw power supplied to the board by the wall adapter is available in
the socket headers labeled “+12V Raw” and “-12V Raw”.
B) Digital Logic Probes
The 16 logic probes are compatible with the 74HC logic family. The slide switch disables the
LED indicators, when desired.
There are 2 logic probe socket headers, labeled 1-8 and 9-16. Each header has two rows of 8
columns, to indicate 2 functionally identical sockets for each signal input. Each column has a
white line between a header column and a bi-polar LED as a visual aid.
Each logic probe input connects to a circuit, which compares logic levels 60 times a second.
When the logic probe switch is ON, a bi-polar LED displays the output of this comparison
circuit.
When an input is at a HIGH (or 1) logic state, the corresponding LED will light RED. When
an input is at a LOW (or 0) logic state, the corresponding LED will light GREEN. If the input
is changing state, the LED color will fluctuate in concert.
When an input is not connected to an external circuit, it can be affected by very low input
currents, and the LED-s may flicker. This indicates an indeterminate logic state. For fun, run
your finger along the top of the socket headers.
C) Digital Switches
The 16 digital switch outputs are buffered and compatible with the 74HC logic family.
There are two digital switch socket headers, labeled 1-8 and 9-16. Each header has two rows
of 8 columns, to indicate 2 functionally identical sockets for each output signal. Each column
has a number between a socket and its corresponding switch.
There are two "dual inline package" (DIP) switches, labeled 1-8 and 9-16. Each switch is
labeled LO (= ON) and HI (= OFF). When a switch is in the LO position, the corresponding
socket will output a logic LOW (or 0). When a switch is in the HI position, the corresponding
socket will output a logic HIGH (or 1).
CAUTION: Do not use a pencil to change the switch positions. Pencil "lead" is conductive
and will destroy your switch. A retracted ballpoint pen works well.
D) Digital Pulsers
There are two digital pulsers, with identical functionality, labeled "A" and "B". These pulsers
are compatible with the 74HC logic family. Each pulser output connects to a 4 row by 2
column socket header.
The top two rows, of each socket header, are labeled with a "down arrow" and the bottom
two rows are labeled with a "up arrow". This gives you 4 possible connections to either
function.
The "down arrow" indicates that pushing the momentary push button will cause the output to
change to a LOW (or 0) state, only while the button is pushed. When the push button is
released, the output returns to a HIGH (or 1) state. The pulser is de-bounced, so there is only
one logic transition pulse per button push.
v. 2.2, © 2005-2006 by R. B. Lineberry, W. C. Headley, & R. W. Hendricks
p. 5
A&D Board User Manual and Test Procedure
The "up arrow" pulser starts at logic LOW (or 0) and becomes HIGH (or 1) only when the
button is pushed.
E) Digital Clock
The digital clock provides a square wave output with approximately 50% duty cycle. Its
frequency can be varied between about 60 Hz and 40 kHz, using the CLK FRQ knob. The
clock frequency increases when the knob is turned clockwise. The high state is typically 4.7V
and the low state is typically 0.3V. Any of the 4 holes of the CLK socket header may be used
to connect the digital clock to a circuit on the breadboard.
A bi-polar LED, located between the CLK and EXT CAP socket headers, indicates the logic
state. When this LED lights both red and green, the digital clock is operating normally. If the
output is stuck low, the LED will be green; when stuck high, the LED will be red.
The frequency range of the digital clock may be lowered by adding an external capacitor to
the EXT CAP socket header. Orient the external capacitor as illustrated by the symbol just to
the left of the header. You may use the top row, bottom row or both rows (for 2 external
capacitors in parallel).
F) Function Generator
The function generator outputs sine or square waveforms with adjustable frequency,
amplitude, and offset. The frequency can be adjusted from approximately 60 Hz to 20 kHz.
The amplitude can be as high as ± 7 volts, depending on the load impedance. The offset
control can be used to compensate for component and circuit variations.
Any of the 4 holes of the GEN socket header may be used to connect the function generator
to a circuit on the breadboard.
To select a square wave output, set the SHAPE switch to SQ. To select a sine wave output,
set the SHAPE switch to SIN.
The AMPLITUDE control adjusts the output voltage of the function generator. A clockwise
rotation increases the output voltage.
If the FINE FRQ control is turned fully counter-clockwise, the FREQ control adjusts the
output frequency between approximately 60 Hz and 5 kHz. A clockwise rotation increases
the frequency.
If the FREQ control is adjusted fully clockwise, the FINE FRQ control adjusts the output
between approximately 5 kHz and 20 kHz. If the FREQ control is set mid-range, the FINE
FRQ control can be used to make small adjustments to the output frequency.
The function generator has a small, non-linear DC offset, which is dependent on wave shape,
frequency, and amplitude. If the driven circuit is not sensitive to these variations, the
OFFSET SW can be set to OFF.
When the OFFSET SW is set to ON, the OFFSET control injects a DC bias. Turn the control
clockwise for a positive bias. This function is normally used to equalize the waveform
transitions above and below ground.
The bi-polar LED, just above the GEN header, indicates the relative output of the function
generator. When the OFFSET SW is ON, and the AMPLITUDE control is fully clockwise,
the OFFSET control can be rotated clockwise to produce a red-lit LED, or counter-clockwise
to produce green.
