University of Southern California Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering EE 202L - Linear Circuits Course Syllabus - Fall 2009 Abstract EE 202L is arguably the cornerstone course in the discipline of electrical engineering. From a classical perspective, EE 202L is an introduction to the physical principles that govern the behavior of analog circuits featuring resistors, capacitors, inductors, ideal operational amplifiers, and other linear components. The primary objective is to develop analytical techniques that simultaneously resolve current and voltage relationships within individual circuit elements and the interconnection relationships between arbitrary sets of elements (Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws). Techniques range from trivial algebra with real or complex numbers to solutions of ordinary differential equations. From a modern perspective, EE 202L explores ways to process electrical information. Apart from amplification, this may involve the alteration of temporal or spectral content or a conversion between analog and digital domains. Electrical signal processing is vital for many communication, control, and biomedical systems. EE 202L leads to a study of electronic circuits (EE 348L) and more advanced methods of signal processing (EE 301). EE 200 is the course prerequisite. Course Administration EE 202L is partly offered in the “studio” format in which lectures, discussions, computer problems, and laboratory exercises all occur in the same setting. There are two sections: TTh 10:00 – 12:00 and TTh 2:00 – 4:00. Separate lab sections are scheduled on Mondays 4:00 – 6:00 and 6:00 – 8:00. Students should enroll in a studio section and a lab section. The TAs will conduct regular office hours (times to be arranged). The last day to drop the class without a W grade is 11 September, and the last day to drop the class with a W grade is 13 November. Incomplete grades (IN) are rarely assigned. The IN grade may be justified only in exceptional cases such as student illness or a
