ELEC 103A Electronics III: Analog Circuits and Practical Applications (2.5)
Credit, Degree Applicable
PREREQ.: ELEC 102A
or demonstration of exit skills
Introduction to intermediate analog electronic circuits, including field effect transistor basics, various analog amplifiers, operational amplifiers and their use. Hands-on electronic projects include building summing and difference amplifiers, audio amplifiers, and AM/FM radios.
Offered Spring semesters
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Construct, analyze, and test different configurations of bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), field effect transistors (JFETs), and operational amplifiers.
- Outcome 2: Trace the signal path for an existing circuit board to create a schematic and bill of materials.
- Outcome 3: Formulate test procedures to analyze simple electronic projects and verify how they work.
- Outcome 4: Integrate the multi-meter, oscilloscope, LCR (inductance L, capacitance C, and resistance R) meter, sweep generator and other instruments into the construction and analysis of electronic circuits.
