ECET 15700 - Electronics Circuit Analysis
Credit Hours: 4.0.
Capacitors, inductors, switching circuits, transformers, rectifiers, linear regulators, dependent sources, operational amplifiers, BJT- & MOSFET-based small-signal amplifiers, waveform generation, and programmable analog devices are studied. Circuit fundamentals such as Kirchhoff's laws are utilized in analysis and design of circuits. Computer simulation is used.
Learning Outcome Objectives
Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to demonstrate the ability to:
1. Analyze the following major types of electronic circuits utilizing basic circuit theory:
Power supplies: rectification, filtering, regulation (Zener, pass transistor, IC), current limiting, heat sinks.
Biasing circuits: BJT, op amp, DC load line.
Amplifier systems: negative feedback, modeling and applying basic circuit analysis techniques, input and output resistance, transfer characteristic (current gain, transresistance, transconductance, voltage gain) , dependent sources, corner frequencies (very basic), amplifier types (voltage, current, transconductance, transresistance), basic discrete BJT amplifier types (CE, CC, differential) as basic building blocks for the op amp, AC load line.
Waveshape generators: positive feedback, analog comparator (general op amp open/closed loop and open collector op amp), relaxation oscillator, IC function generators.
2. Use the following device characteristics and specifications with emphasis on ideal or near ideal models:
Diodes: rectifier, Zener, LED
Bipolar Junction Transistors BJT
General purpose Operational Amplifiers
IC waveform generator
3. Practice and apply lab knowledge and skills in the use of laboratory test equipment such as the DMM, function generator, oscilloscope, and power supply; and the introduction of the curve tracer.
4. Produce professional looking documentation of homework, the presentation of laboratory collected data, and lab reports utilizing computer generated word processing, imported spreadsheet data, simulations and circuit analysis documentation.
