Linear Electronic Circuits (3) Theoretical study of linear electronic devices and circuits, including field effect transistors, integrated circuits, and operational amplifiers.
EET 216 Linear Electronic Circuits (3)
Linear Electronic Circuits is the second course in a 2-course sequence that examines linear electronic circuits using semiconductors. It picks up where EET 210 leaves off and delves into the actual devices used to develop amplifiers and op-amp devices. This includes study of the biasing and operation of diodes, zeners, bipolar junction transistors, junction and metal-oxide field effect transistors, and thyristors. The design and operation of CE, CB, and CC transistor amplifiers and CS, CD, and CG FET amplifiers are covered in detail. Students are introduced to the fundamental theory of operation of each of the devices and circuits and are provided with practical models to analyze their operation. Questions of amplifier gains, power efficiency, and frequency response are covered for these devices and circuits just as they were for the op-amp circuits covered in EET 210. A portion of the course also examines class A, AB, and B power amplifiers and power regulation circuits.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
