In the first module, Basic Circuit Experiments such as Thevenin Equivalent Circuits, RC and RL first order circuits, Resonance Circuits/Higher order filters, Operational Amplifier Circuit, and basic radio circuit with the use of opamp, diode and RLC circuits. In the second module, DC, small-signal and frequency models of semiconductor devices such as PN diodes, BJT and MOSFETs will be included. Using these models, different circuit implementation will be executed, such as Wave Shaping Circuits (with diodes, op-amps, passives and integral/differentiator circuits), Different Configuration of Single/Multi Stage Amplifiers (CE, CC, DB, and combination of these as multistage amp., CS, CD, CG, and combinations), Oscillators (with BJTs and feedback concepts), etc. Analytical design methodologies, along with CAD tools (such as PSPICE), will also be part of the course for designing and implementing circuits.


After successfully studying EE 200, students will be able to:

1. Understand the basic electrical engineering principles and abstractions on which the design of electronic systems is based. These include lumped circuit models, diodes, transistors and operational amplifiers.

2. Use these engineering abstractions to analyze and design simple electronic circuits.

3. Formulate and solve differential equations describing the time behavior of circuits containing energy storage elements.

4. Use intuition to describe the approximate time and frequency behavior of circuits containing energy storage elements.

5. Understand the concepts of employing simple models to represent non-linear and active elements-such as,Diodes, BJTs and MOSFETs-in circuits.

6. Understanding the basic active filter behaviors and Op-Amp fundamentals and learn how to design active filter circuits for a specific bandwidth and the inverting, non-inverting amplifier, and integrator principles.

7. Build circuits and take measurements of circuit variables using tools such as oscilloscopes, multimeters, and signal generators. Compare the measurements with the behavior predicted by mathematic models and explain the discrepancies.

8. Understand the relationship between the mathematical representation of circuit behavior and corresponding real-
life effects.
