After this class you should be able to explain the physical operating principles of major electronic devices, understand the circuit models of each device and use the models in circuit analysis and design, and be able to use the basic building blocks of integrated circuit amplifiers . Course Content ( 6 th ed ) 1. Introduction ( Ch1 , Ch2 ) (2 wks) 2. Semiconductors ( Ch3 ) (1.5 wks) 3. PN Junction Diodes ( Ch4 ) (1.5 wks) 4. Bipolar Junction Transistors ( Ch6 ) (3 wks) 5. MOS Field-Effect Transistors ( Ch5 ) (3-4 wks) 6. Building Blocks of IC Amps ( Ch7 ) (1.5 wks) 7. Frequency Response (Ch9; Chaps.4 and 5 ) ~ time permitting [Exam#1= 3.5wks; Exam#2 = 4.5wks; Exam#3 = 4.5wks] Approximate hourly exam dates : 1 st exam is on (Chs.1, 2 and 3) around the Ch3 completion time; 2 nd exam is on (Chs.4 and 6) around the Ch6 completion time; and 3 rd exam is around the Ch5 or Ch7 completion time. Exact dates will be announced in class. Required Textbooks, tools and Bibliography. A. A. S. Sedra and K. C. Smith, "Microelectronic Circuits," 6 th ed. Oxford University Press, 2010. Chap.1 through part of Chap.7. B. UBClicker (set to Channel 10 for Knox 110) Exams and Quizzes Four exams are scheduled. Three exams will be given during the lecture time. The final exam is given at the time and place designated by the central scheduling. Best three scores of the four tests will be used in the semester exam total, accounting for 70% of the final grade. Missed exams are given a zero grade. There are no make-up exams . Exams are closed book and closed note. Calculator is allowed. Cell phones and any other communication devices, including laptops, are not permitted during the exam and during the lecture. Quizzes are given randomly, using UBClicker , throughout the semester. Expect quizzes every week. Nine tenth of all quizzes will be counted toward the semester quiz total while the remaining one tenth is dropped. Missed quizzes are assigned a zero score and there is no make-up quiz . The quiz score total plus the attendance credit will account for 20% of the final grade. Class Absence Policy and Quiz There is no make-up quiz. The missed quizzes are assigned zero. Daily attendance credit can be added to the quiz total. The UBClicker is required for taking the quiz.
