Course Objectives:

To give students a basic understanding of how semiconductor devices work and how they are used in analog and digital integrated circuits.


EE40: KVL and KCL, Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits, impedance, frequency response (Bode plots), semiconductor basics, simple pn-junction diode and MOSFET theory and circuit applications, large-signal vs. small-signal response, analog vs. digital signals.

Relation to other courses:

EE105 is a prerequisite for EE113 (Power Electronics) and EE140 (LInear Integrated Circuits).  It is also helpful (but not required) for EE141 (Introduction to Digital Integrated Circuits).
