ELEC3250- Analog Circuit Design

This course covers the concepts of design, analysis, simulation, implementation and evaluation of analog electronic circuits and systems. Topics include semiconductor physics, BJT, MOS, and FET devices and linear integrated circuits. Prerequisite: Junior status, MATH1850 Calculus II; ELEC2750 Network Theory II. Day Course.

Course Objectives

  1. Apply knowledge of the basic electrical characteristics of discrete and integrated electronic devices, including operational amplifiers, diodes, and transistors to circuit analysis and design.

  2.  Design circuits using transistors and op-amps to meet a given performance goal, that accounts for specification of parameters, such as gain-bandwidth product. 

  3. Design active filters to meet the desired frequency response.

  4. Identify the effects of non-ideal behavior of op-amps, including DC errors, voltage and current limits, bandwidth and slew rate limits, on analysis and design of an op-amp circuit.

  5.  Employ hardware and software implementation techniques for various configurations of analog circuits discussed in this course.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Updated Fall 2017

Student Outcomes

(6)  An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
