Long Title: ANALOG ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS
Department: Electrical & Computer Eng.
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Course Type: Lecture/Laboratory
Credit Hours: 3
Restrictions:
May not be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Prerequisite(s): ELEC 242 OR ELEC 243
Description: The course starts with a review of 1st order and 2nd order linear circuits. It emphasizes time-domain techniques and discusses step and impulse responses, reviews basic device physics of a CMOS transistor, followed by a derivation of current-voltage equations. The course also covers an in-depth analysis of large-signal behavior, linearization, and small signal models. Furthermore, it discusses single-stage and multi-stage amplifiers as well as differential amplifiers, common mode rejection ratio (CMRR), and techniques for increasing gain and improving linearity.
