ELE 203 (STL)
Electronic Circuit Design, Analysis and Implementation
Introduction to electronic theory and practice. DC and AC circuit analysis theorems and passive and active components, from resistors/capacitors/inductors to operational amplifiers. Feedback, sinusoidal steady state analysis, frequency response, resonance, diodes, transistors. Labs and demos support and extend class material, culminating in a functioning radio. Creative circuit design using light and sound outputs is encouraged. A final project on bio-sensing, including design and testing of an electrocardiogram circuit to sense real heartbeats. SPICE circuit simulation is introduced and leveraged in the labs and project.
