COURSE NUMBER: ELEC167
COURSE TITLE:Electronic Circuits I
DIVISION:Technology
IAI CODE(S):
SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS:4
CONTACT HOURS:90
STUDENT ENGAGEMENT HOURS:180
DELIVERY MODE:In-Person

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course is designed for the college students who need training in the principles and applications of analog electronic devices, circuits, and systems, such as solid-state devices like diodes and transistors. The concepts of rectification from AC to DC using diodes and signal gain in single/multi stage amplifiers circuits will be introduced. Special semiconductor devices will be introduced and how they are used in electronic circuits will be studied. The purpose of this course is to assist in the education and preparations of technicians, who can effectively diagnose, repair, verify, and install electronic circuits and systems.

PREREQUISITES:
ELEC160
