| ELEC167 syllabus
|COURSE NUMBER: ||ELEC167|
|COURSE TITLE:||Electronic Circuits I|
|SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS:||4|
|STUDENT ENGAGEMENT HOURS:||180|
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.
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Become familiar with diodes and transistors (called active components) and the circuits they are commonly used in.
- Learn how to use test equipment and computer software that can be helpful tools in understanding and analyzing the solid state analog circuits.
- Rectifiers and amplifiers will be studied at length.
