The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the fundamentals of the analysis and design of basic analog circuits. Topics to be covered include: operational amplifier design, basic amplifier feedback theory, frequency stability and compensation, dc bias calculations and circuits, MOSFET and BJT large- and small-signal device models, small-signal gain and frequency response characteristics of amplifiers, large-signal characteristics and nonidealities. In the hardware laboratory the student will gain experience designing, building, and characterizing analog circuits. The students will also learn how to use the SPICE circuit simulation program to compare actual and simulated performance. The analysis and design of analog circuits incorporating both Bipolar and CMOS technologies will be considered. 3 hrs. lec., 1 hr. rec., 3 hrs. lab.
