EET 202 - Electronics 2
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.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Employ techniques to analyze and design differential and power amplifiers.
- Identify JFET and Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) transistors and describe their function.
- Describe thyristors and their operations.
- Make use of the concepts of electronic theory in troubleshooting and design of electronic circuits.
- Define the concepts in the design of active filters, oscillators and timers.
- Use Electronics Workbench and Multisim simulators in the design and analysis of electronic circuits.
