EET 251 - Electronic Circuitry and Laboratory
This second course in Electronics incorporates the devices introduced in EET 150 into representative circuits of moderate complexity. They include amplifiers, oscillators, regulators, op-amp active filters, and other related circuits. The characteristics of operational amplifiers and their use in various linear and non-linear applications are explored in some detail. Computer simulation software is used to perform frequency response analysis of active filters, and to also analyze other electronic circuits.
