EE 3102 - Analog Electronics I

3 lecture hours 2 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course considers the mathematical modeling of active, solid-state devices and the analysis and design of single-stage circuits incorporating them. Small signal amplifiers are analyzed and designed, and the circuits are implemented in the laboratory. Topics covered include the study of device characteristics and applications of p-n-junction diodes, bipolar junction transistors, and field effect transistors. Circuit simulation software is utilized as an engineering design tool. (prereq: EE 2070  or EE 3002B )
