This course and lab will investigate the traditional electronic circuit
theories necessary to understand the operation of modem electronic
components, circuits and systems. Information will be presented with an
emphasis on signal processing application. Topics will include: KYL,,
KCL, Superposition, Thevenin & Norton equivalents, real &
imaginary numbers, impedance, magnitude and phase response of circuits,
filter types & applications, pulse analysis, transient analysis,
steady-state analysis, Fourier Analysis, dB measurement and
semiconductor fundamentals. Students will use software to simulate
circuits and help solve/verify equations. In the lab students will make
use of modem test equipment controlled by LabView software to perform
data acquisition and then use MS Excel to tabulate, analyze and graph
the data. Students will be required to perform the experiments, maintain
a lab notebook and submit formal lab reports.
