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:
- name and explain the behavior of the functional components in an electronic system,
- correctly examine system specifications using analytical and mathematical tools, and
- 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.
