EET 202 - Electronics 2

Credits: 4
3 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: EET 201  

This course is a continuing study of Electronics 1 and its applications. Emphasis will be on power amplifiers, differential amplifiers, junction gate field-effect transistors (JFETs), metal oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) and thyristors. Detailed analysis of linear op-amp circuits and their applications will be presented. Popular linear integrated circuits (IC) and timers will be covered.
