Electrical Engineering Technology (EET)

EET 210 Fundamentals of Semiconductors (2) Semiconductor and circuit theory including power supplies, amplifiers, power amplifiers, oscillators, and introduction to op-amps.

EET 210 Fundamentals of Semiconductors (2)

Fundamentals of Semiconductors is the first of a 2 course sequence that examines the physics and operation of the four basic forms of linear amplifier circuits. It does so by examining the operation and modeling of typical circuits built from operational amplifiers, including inverting and non-inverting amplifiers, transconductance and transresistance amplifiers, voltage followers, instrument amplifiers, summing amplifiers, and other circuits capable of performing mathematical functions. The course also examines a variety of practical non-linear electronic circuits, including integrators, differentiators, log function amplifiers, filters, and oscillators. Issues of frequency response, circuit stability, negative feedback, and compensation are covered in the course. The course also touches on problems of D-to-A and A-to-D conversion and electronic communication. In all areas, issues related to device characteristics and their impact on circuit operation and device selection are covered.
