4 units – Winter, Spring Quarters
Lecture: 3 hours
Discussion: 1 hour
Prerequisites: EEC 100
Use and modeling of nonlinear solid-state electronic devices in basic analog and digital circuits. Introduction to the design of transistor amplifiers and logic gates.
Expanded Course Description:
Students may use SPICE on several of the homework assignments (at the discretion of the instructor).
Engineering Design Statement:
Much of this course is devoted to the modeling and analysis of electronic circuits. Because the analysis of any reasonably complex circuit is analytically intractable, the model selection, analysis techniques, and assumptions made are a major part of the design process. The students are shown how to recognize from an analysis those elements that are critical in determining the system’s performance so that they can be exploited in the design phase. Open-ended problems are used on the homework.
Relationship to Outcomes:
Students who have successfully completed this course should have achieved:
|Course Outcomes||ABET outcomes|
