The prerequisites for this course are EE16A and EE16B. It is assumed that you are familiar with the following topics:

  • Basic network theory: RLC circuits, analysis methods, setp/frequency response, poles and zeros, complex impedance, transient response analysis
  • Ideal operational amplifier circuit design and analysis
  • Some exposure to digital logic circuits, e.g., inverter operation
  • Basic electromagnetics: fields and waves, potential, Gauss's law


  • Required:
    • A. S. Sedra, K. G. Smith, Microelectronic Circuits,   7th Edition, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    • Various supplementary material released throughout the course.

  • Supplementary:
    • Tuinenga, SPICE: A Guide to Circuit Simulation & Analysis Using PSpice.

    • NOTE:  This text is very helpful towards learning the intracacies on how to use SPICE to perform vairous circuit simulations. It is not required, but if you really want to learn SPICE, this is a good book.
