ET 3100 - Electronic Circuit Design

3 lecture hours 2 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course provides an introduction to electronic circuit design. The student applies fundamental electronic circuit concepts to laboratory design projects utilizing discrete semiconductor devices and analog integrated circuits. Design activity focuses on linear power supplies, switching mode power supplies, sinusoidal oscillators and active filters. Circuit simulation software is utilized as an integral part of the design process. (prereq: ET 3001 )
