EE40 and 42/100 COURSE DESCRIPTION
Spring 2007
Course
Objectives:
EE40
is intended to teach basic circuit theory and principles of electronic
engineering as preparation for subsequent EE courses, whereas EE 42/100 (and EE
43) serve as an introduction to the principles of Electrical Engineering, using
electronic devices to communicate, solve problems, and manipulate our
environment.
The
content of EE40/42/100 has been converging over the last few semesters, and the
courses have been using the same textbook and similar syllabi. The main
difference now resides on 34 lectures. In EE 40, we spend 1~2 more lectures
on the physics of diodes and the resulting currentvoltage characteristics. In
addition, there are two more lectures discussing MOSFET characteristics, the
small signal model and its circuit applications. This 34 lectures in EE
42/100, on the other hand, are used to discuss logic gates and applications.
In this semester, our lectures will follow mostly along the EE40 syllabus,
while we will make efficient use of time to cover some of the logic gates.
The
discussion sessions will remain separate and used to supplement the materials
we cannot cover due to the limitation of class time. Students should regularly
attend discussion sessions and should stay with the same session they sign up
for.
As
appropriate, homework sets, discussion sections, and exams will provide any
needed differentiation between classes. Labs will remain separate and a
separate grading curve will be used for each class.
Catalog
Description:
Fundamental
circuit concepts and analysis techniques. Kirchoff's laws, nodal analysis;
independent and dependent sources. Thévenin, Norton equivalent circuits.
Transient and AC analysis; speed and power. Phasors, Bode plots and transfer
