Characteristics, applications, analysis, and design of circuits using BJTs and field-effect transistors (FET) with small and large-signal behaviors. Classroom concepts are reinforced through laboratory experiments and design exercises. Two in-class exams and one final exam will be prepared. No makeup exams will be given. It is in your best interest to attend all exams on the date of their delivery. Conflicts must be stated before the fact. Failure to attend an exam or to make previous arrangements results in a score of zero. Incompletes are not given out as course grades as a consequence of missing an exam, laboratory, or homework assignment. Examinations are normally closed-book, closed-notes, and closed homeworks. Single sheets of summary notes are, however, permitted.


1 student edition. since solutions to the homework will be posted on the class website immediately after the homework is handed in. Computers and Software: HP-VEE software will be used in the lab experiments and available on the PC’s in the lab. Only PSpice A/D and Capture will be used in this course.sedrasmith. New York: McGraw-Hill. Sedra. but strongly recommended since you are responsible for any material covered in class and any handouts distributed during this time. it is most important that your work be legible. Homework is due at the end of class one week from the day it was handed out. 1997. Microelectronics. T. This includes Pspice A/D. New York: McGraw-Hill. Calculators: An electronic hand calculator is necessary for both the exams and homeworks in this class. 4th Students are responsible for knowing how to use their own calculators. and on one side of the page only for full credit. Homework should be in order. Be sure to use PSpice 9. and PSpice Optimizer. Sodini. Capture. You are encouraged to work together on the problems. N. Microelectronic circuits and devices Homework: Homework will consist of problems given out on a weekly basis. A programmable calculator or one that offers an equation “solver” function is not required. 1996 M. A. Kenneth C. Schematics.g. e.
