ADVISE: ET 50 or (elementary algebra or higher)
Study the construction and analysis of basic electronic circuits, including capacitors and inductors. Use of the multi-meter to measure DC and AC voltages and currents in resistive series/parallel circuits and the oscilloscope for AC, pulsed waveforms, phase, and time delay measurements. Computer simulation software (Multisim) to analyze circuits.
ADVISE: ELEC 101 or demonstration of exit skills
This course covers diode characteristics, power supplies, bipolar transistors, simple one-stage amplifiers, constant current sources, and transformers. The students will learn the intermediate use of the oscilloscope and multi-meter for both calibration and troubleshooting. Hands-on electronic projects include building their own power supply, a current regulator, and various amplifier circuits.
