Introduction to Circuits for Electrical and Computer Engineers (ECE 2100) Syllabus for ECE 2100 Spring 2011 Prof. Alyosha Molnar ( [email protected] ), Phillips 402: Office Hours: corresponding to discussion sections every week TAs: (office hours corresponding to Lab sections every week) Co-instructor: Michael Kelley ( [email protected] ) Guansheng Li ([email protected]) Kai-Yuan Chen ([email protected]) Akshay Panchivati ([email protected]) Lecture: Room Thurston 205 MWF 10:10-11:00am Lab sections: Phillips 237 M 2:15-4:10pm T 12:20-2:15pm W 12:20-2:15pm Discussion sections (not every week) Phillips 407 T 2:55-4:10pm Hollister 206 W 2:55-4:10pm This course is meant to serve as an introduction to the most basic aspects of electronic circuits. Although we only encounter the use of simple devices in this course, the techniques developed are generally used to analyze more complex circuits with active transistor components. We start with basic quantities used to characterize circuit operation (like current, voltage, and power) and then enforce several physical laws to form the basis of our approach to circuit analysis. Several passive circuit elements including resistors, inductors and capacitors will be examined in combination in both transient operation (step response) and under steady state sinusoidal excitation. Active components including Op-Amps will be introduced and used to build simple amplifiers. With the lab component of the course we will learn how to use modern instruments to test circuits in a comprehensive fashion. Also in the lab, several type of diodes, including solar cells and visible, as they relate to energy production and conservation will be examined. Text Coverage 1.

Prerequisite : MATH 2930 (differential equations), PHYS 2213 (Electromagnetism) Primary Text: Electric Circuits” by Nilsson and Riedel Homework will be assigned roughly once every other week and will be given as individual assignments. You are encouraged to work with other students on homework assignments but each student must turn in a separate assignment, in their own writing. You must show your work… if you do not, we will assume you did not do it.
