This course will introduce you the basic concepts, physical principles of electronic elements and elementary circuits, and circuits design in electronics. Emphasis is on analog circuit analysis; semiconductors; diode theory, diodes, and diode circuits; transistor fundamentals, transistors, BJTs, FFETs, MOSFETs; amplifiers, op-amps; logic gates; and integrated circuits. The objectives are to understand how electronic elements and circuits work and to develop capability and skills in analyzing circuits and designing functional circuits from integrated circuit building blocks..
- 1) To understand the theory and principles of basic elements, devices, and circuits in electronics: resistor, inductance, capacitance, op-amp, logic gate, flip-flop, diodes, transistors, amplifiers;
- 2) To be able to apply Ohm's law, KVL, KCL, Thevenin's and Norton's theorems and equivalent circuits in circuit analysis, design, and test;
- 3) To develop the skills and capability to design, build, and test elementary analog and digital circuits using the components list in 1).
Course outcomings (complying with ABET A-K):
After this course, you should have
A. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
B. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data. G. an ability to communicate effectively
Your final grade for the course will depend on your active participation in both lectures and labs, ability to understand and apply electronic theory and principles in circuit analysis, functional circuit design, presentation in the form of wring homework, lab check out, and lab reports. The final grade of the course will be determined approximately as follows:
- Homework: 20%
- Lab check out and report: 15%
- 4-5 Tests: 65%
Grading scale observes: A=(92,100], A-=[90, 92], B+=(87, 90), B=[83, 87], B-=[80, 83), C+=(77, 80), C=[73, 77], C-=[70, 73), D+=(67, 70), D=[63, 67], D-=[60, 63), F=[0, 60). [ or ] means inclusive, ( or ) means exclusive. Also: A= 4.0, A-=3.7, B+=3.3, B=3.0, B-=2.7, C+=2.3, C=2.0, C-=1.7, D+=1.3, D=1.0, D-=0.7, F=0.
