Electronic Circuit Design, Analysis and Implementation

Naveen Verma

Introduction to electronic circuits and systems. Methods of circuit analysis to create functions from devices, including resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, and transistors, in conjunction with op-amps. Quantitative focus on DC and higher-frequency signals using linear systems theory. A major emphasis on intuition, with labs organized as mini projects (1. Touch-screen controller, 2. Radio, 3. Brain-machine interface), where students pursue design (using op-amps and micro controllers), simulations (using SPICE), and analysis (both by hand and using MATLAB).

Sample reading list:
Dorf, Electric Circuits

Reading/Writing assignments:
Chapters of the text and the lab manual are assigned for reading. Keeping a lab notebook, including entry of observations and summary of experiments, is required.

Mid Term Exam - 30%
Final Exam - 30%
Lab Reports - 30%
Problem set(s) - 10%

Other Requirements:
Course is required for concentrators

Other information:
Labs begin during the first week of the course. Students may change lab section between the first and second week. The second-week choice is final. Bring a bound notebook to the first lab.
