Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Apply (iii) KVL and KCL to calculate the currents and voltages in simple circuits (max. four nodes or three loops) with passive components, independent sources, and one transistor (dependant source). [1, 2]
  • Describe (ii) the electrical characteristics of diode, BJT, and MOSFET with emphasis on different regions of operation. [1]
  • Apply (iii) large-signal model for diode, MOSFET, and BJT to calculate bias voltages and currents in simple circuits. [1, 2]
  • Use (iii) BJT and MOSFET as a switch to turn on/off a low power (max. 1W) load. [1]
  • Apply (iii) small-signal model for diode, MOSFET, and BJT to calculate input/output impedance and voltage gain of a one stage transistor amplifier. [1, 2]
  • Use (iii) the concept of Thevenin (Norton) equivalent circuit to measure voltage gain, input resistance, and output resistance of transistor based amplifier. [1, 5]
  • Apply the definition of 3dB bandwidth and use Bode plots to characterize (ii) the frequency response of an amplifier. [1]
