Coarse Description ECE051 is a hands-on, laboratory-centered , vertically integrated introduction to microelectronic devices, sensors, and integrated circuits. The curiosity-driven learning experience in this class is designed to fuel your interest in devices, sensors, and integrated circuits. An interest that you can pursue in subsequent non-core classes. The ECE051 learning experience will be focused on the design project of an electronic system (that must include devices, sensors, and integrated circuits) and will cover its design, assembly, characterization and testing, simulation using HSPICE, and performance enhancement.

Course Goals To gain knowledge and experience in the operation and electrical characterization of devices, sensors, and integrated circuits . To experience the design of analog and digital circuits. To experience the techniques and methodologies of circuit analysis, design, assembly, testing, characterization, simulation, and optimization . To gain teamwork experience in the project design, analysis, experimentation, planning, documentation, and execution. To develop and increase your awareness of project budget and time management in reaching pre-planned milestones and deliverables .

The Start of the Modern Electronics Era Bardeen, Shockley, and Brattain at Bell Labs - Brattain and Bardeen invented the bipolar transistor in 1947. The first germanium bipolar transistor. Roughly 50 years later, electronics account for 10% (4 trillion dollars) of the world GDP.
