Design of amplifiers and other electronic systems to satisfy specifications. Bipolar and field-effect transistors, diodes integrated circuits and passive components are part of the hardware needed. Gain, bandwidth, feedback, stability are some of the design concepts needed.
This is the fourth laboratory experience for all EE students in which they learn to design and build more complicated circuits (systems) based on the theoretical and analytical concepts developed in 3204 and the lab skills learned in the 2074, 2274, and 3074 laboratory sequence. Unlike the earlier courses where the emphasis is on developing construction and analysis skills, this course emphasizes circuit design skills that require the student to create circuits that meet customer/user specifications.
