EET 331 Electronic Design (4)

E E T 330 is intended to provide competency in the application of basic electronic principles to design with operational amplifiers and integrated circuits. The course will include analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion techniques; introduction to the feedback principles and non-ideal aspects of operational amplifiers including noise - needed for advanced design with op-amps; some nonlinear op-amp circuits - including comparators, Schmitt triggers, pulse width modulation, and ideal rectifiers, active filter design and waveform generator design. Grades will be based on 3 or 4 exams including a final exam (65%), laboratory work, computer projects requiring the use of circuit simulation software, spreadsheets, and math packages, and homework (30%), and student professionalism (5%). The IEEE code of ethics and the Penn State policy on academic integrity will be applied in the instructor's judgment of student professionalism. This course requires calculus through integral and differential calculus of transcendental functions, advanced circuit analysis techniques (E E T 311, E ENG 354, or E ENG 352), and knowledge of frequency response analysis techniques (E E T 312). It provides the electronic circuit analysis and design skills required in the Electronics, Systems, and Technical Electives in the General Electrical Engineering Technology Option and the Applications and Technical Electives in the Computer Engineering Technology Option.
