Course Description

Co-requisite: EE 301 or equivalent, or permission of instructor. A study of the behavior and modeling of semiconductor devices. Topics include nonlinearity and the methods used to analyze nonlinear elements, simple AC and DC converters, and voltage regulation. Among the semiconductor devices studied are diodes, bipolar junction-transistors and field-effect transistors. Computer simulation is used as a design and study aid. The primary methods of assessing student learning are homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and design projects.
