The goal of the course is to reach a level sufficient for communication with an electrical engineer at reasonable depth.

At the end of this course, the non-EE student will be able to:
  1. name and explain the behavior of the functional components in an electronic system,
  2. correctly examine system specifications using analytical and mathematical tools, and
  3. solve elementary equations to analyze electronic systems.

This course intends to be a first introduction to elementary concepts of electrical engineering (EE) for students with a non-EE background (computer science, mechanical engineering, etc.). Exposure to the topic is established by theory, pen-and-paper problems, homework computer-simulation exercises, and measurements in the laboratory.

Topics: properties of electronic systems, analysis of electric circuits, signal description in both time and frequency domain, complex transfer functions, impedances, two-ports, Bode plots, operational amplifiers, passive and active filters, semiconductor components such as diodes and the MOS transistor, implementation of digital logic in CMOS, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, virtual instrumentation. 
Previous knowledge can be gained by
Sources for self-study (for example book, site, etc): elementary linear algebra, 1st and 2nd-order differential equations, complex numbers
