SCDV - 230. Electronics

Three hours of lecture and three hours of lab per week.
4 credit(s)
Electronics is at the heart of much of modern society. This course is an in-depth exploration of analog circuits, including series and parallel resistor networks, diodes, transistors as switches and amplifiers, and operational amplifiers with comparators and amplifier applications. It uses MATLAB and Simulink to facilitate circuit design and to select and simulate circuit test point values. The laboratory component of the course develops competence with multimeters, protoboards, function generators, and oscilloscopes with the goal of predicting and troubleshooting circuit performance. Soldering skills are developed through the assembly and soldering of circuit kits which use the components studied in class. Finally, projects with microcontrollers provide and introduction to digital circuit topics. Lab fee.

Prerequisite(s): PHYS 120  or PHYS 140 .
