Purpose

The class covers introductory topics in analog electronics. Together with ELEG312, it constitutes the foundation for
integrated analog circuit anal
ysis and synthesis. The main goal is to present the students to the fundamental
semiconductor components (diodes and transistors), appropriate modeling and analysis techniques as well as basic
analog circuit configurations and applications. At the end of t
he class, the student should be able to model, analyze and to
a certain level synthesize circuits containing a few transistors.


General contents

During the first part of the semester we take an ideal approach to circuits with operational amplifiers, follo
wed by a
detailed study of diodes from the system level perspective
short insight into the domain of solid
-
state electronics
.
The
third

part introduces the concept of transistors and specifically deals with biasing, small signal modeling and single
-
stage
a
mplification circuits using bipolar transistors. The last part of the course deals with MOSFET transistors, and it covers
biasing, small
-
signal modeling and single
-
stage amplifiers using MOSFET’s.


Prerequisites

Basic calculus; ELEG205: circuit analysis te
chniques (KVL and KCL, superposition, circuit transformation, Thévenin and
Norton equivalents); good level of algebra (never hurts.)


Class requirements

One test
-
mid of semester and final
-
, bi
-
weekly homework, weekly quizzes (easy) and illustrative lab ex
periments
constitute the workload for the class.



The tests and quizzes are individual and closed book. The instructor will provide a help sheet for midterm and
final tests and NO additional material is allowed during the exams or quizzes, except for calc
ulators when
necessary. Any requests for “make up” tests (midterm or final) will be subjected to university policy. No
normalization (curving) will be applied to partial grades (quizzes, homework, labs or tests), only final grades will
be normalized accord
ing to statistical distribution of data.


Theoretical homework and lab experiments are in groups of two people (you can work alone for the homework if
you will, but the lab sessions have to be in couples). Only one homework submission per group is necessar
y and
it is due at 5PM on the submission date (see schedule next page). Homework that is not submitted on the due
date by 5PM will not be accepted, and will be assigned a grade of zero.

Homework is to submitted and picked up
from the labeled bins on the se
cond floor in evans.



Quizzes are an easy and fast way to keep you focused on the subjects presented in class and covered in the
homework exercises. I urge you to devote time to homework and quizzes and come back to class or office hours
(TA’s or instruct
or’s) to clear your doubts. A good, well
-
distributed dedication to such simple matters will ease
your way to the tests and guarantee satisfactory final grades. Quizzes and homework solutions, as well as test
solutions will be posted in the website shortly
after their submission date (see schedule next page.)


The worst personal quiz of the semester will not be taken into account in the grade computation. In addition, you
have the possibility of one and only one “make up” quiz within one week of the original

quiz date with no
academic penalty. Any other quizzes missed during the semester will count as zero. Email me to schedule your
make up quiz.


Attendance to lab sessions is mandatory and except for proven medical conditions the lab practices are not to be
rescheduled/reprogrammed.


Important note: Any evidence of copied lab reports, homework or dishonesty during tests and quizzes will result
in an academic dishonesty report in your record and the corresponding academic penalty. NO EXCEPTIONS.
