EE 310 Electronic Circuit Design I

In this course, we learn about the electrical properties of different fundamental semiconductor devices and their basic circuit design applications. This course deals explicitly with both linear and nonlinear applications of devices, and with the practical aspects of design such as the inherently nonlinear nature of semiconductor devices. The analysis concepts introduced in your previous networks course are utilized and advanced in their treatment of nonlinear devices. In the laboratory, we put the theory into practice.
