Outline Topic of EE 40: Electronics Fry’s, great/frustrating stuff, always better, cheaper For EE: tool to make a career (like paint for artist) What can it do 1. Compute & info processing (db) 2. Communication, wired & rf (compare snail mail, BWRC) 3. Sense & actuate (BSAC) What will I get out of EE 40? Many possible careers: 1. Physical electronics 2. System designer, embedded systems 3. Software 4. ALL: Moore’s law (Gates 640kB), imagine startup goal Continuation of Moore’s law: look out for new (hard to predict, if I know I’d be VC) Limits. What’s possible, what not. “common knowledge”: how connect car batteries, speed of radio waves, electrons in wires Course organization Your goal (I assume): become a very successful engineer, bringing fame to you and Berkeley (and EE 40) My goal: give you a good a start in electronics Focus: electronics. I hope to spend less about grades. Speaking of: I know they are very important. Info on web (bspace). Other info also: schedule, assignments, labs, text book Let’s get started How do electronic devices work? Ask physicists: electrons. Examples (e.g. antenna gate – Maxwell’s eqs) Engineers: care only about those electrons (physics) that actually matter for my system Model, assumptions EE 40 Lecture 1: Electronics 2
