EE 4112 - Advanced Analog Electronics

2 lecture hours 2 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course continues investigation of single and cascaded BJT and MOSFET amplifiers. In addition, midband gains, impedances, and frequency responses of multi-transistor amplifiers are studied. The effects of classic feedback configurations on amplifier characteristics are included. A significant portion of the course is based on comprehensive design projects. Students are expected to use previously learned design tools such as PSPICE to explore alternatives and verify their designs. The designs are constructed and tested in the laboratory, and documented in formal design reports. (prereq: EE 3101  or EE 3112 , EE 3111  or EE 3102 )
