Beyond Resistive Circuits What we can do Sensor interfaces: high input resistance, gain, low impedance drive, level shift, … E.g. strain, light, pressure, temperature, humidity sensor, microphone, headset amplifier, … But we cannot build & understand, e.g., the following with just resistors, amplifiers, and sources: Timer circuit Voltage doubler Explain finite speed of real circuits Any kind of memory we need some form of “memory” EE 40 Lecture 12: Capacitors 2
