Clone of PS 141.1

PS 141.1 Electronics I (lecture) (3 units)

This is a pure lecture course for Computer Engineering (Chemistry) majors that deals with the physics of linear and non-linear circuits. It begins with the study of passive circuits with resistive, capacitive, and inductive elements. This is followed with the study of semiconductor devices like diodes, bipolar junction transistors (BJT), field effect transistors (FET), and operational amplifiers (op-amps) as circuit elements. Emphasis is given on the applications of the aforementioned circuit elements in power supplies, voltage regulators, amplifiers and oscillators.
