Course description and aims

Electronic circuits form the basis for current information systems and their designs are becoming more complicated while all complicated electronic circuits are just combinations of transistors. Therefore you can analyze electronic circuits if you understand the properties of transistors. On the other hand, it is essential to acquire analysis techniques specific to electronic circuits for designing them.
In this course students will acquire analysis techniques specific to electronic circuits as well as understand the properties of transistors and will learn the features and applications of operational amplifiers.

Student learning outcomes

In this course students will acquire the following methods
1) Circuit analysis techniques of good prospect
2) Design methods for simple electronic circuits.

Keywords

Transistor,Amplification,Oscillation,Negative Feedback,Differential Amplifier,Operational Amplifier

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

To begin with, simple reviews of circuit analysis methods will be carried out and the properties of transistors and their relation to amplification will be explained. As a simple example amplifiers using operational amplifiers will be introduced. Next, amplifiers using a single transistor will be explained, and analysis methods of more complex amplifiers. Furthermore, evaluation methods for the properties of these amplifiers and improvement methods using negative feedback concept will be introduced. Finally as applications of electronic circuits, design methods of power amplifiers, filters and oscillators are described.
