Course Overview:

An introductory course covering the theory, analysis, and basic operating principles of solid state devices including diodes, transistors, and op-amps. The course will cover (1) discrete component circuits (power supplies, amplifiers), (2) Op Amp chip based circuits (filtering, summing, amp,), and (3) Logic circuits (boolean algebra, combinational logic, sequential logic). In the lab section students will analyze and breadboard circuit prototypes, learn to use lab instruments including multimeters and oscilloscopes, analyze test data, and prepare technical reports.
