About These Notes The present set of notes, An Introduction to Microelectronics , have been written for the course Engr 353 ( Electronics ) being offered by the School of Engineering at SFSU. There is a follow-up set of notes, An Introduction to Analog Integrated Circuit Design , which are being written for the course Engr 445 ( Analog IC Design ). The latter are a continuation of the former (the 353 notes consist of Chs. 1-3, and the 445 notes of Chs. 4-7.) It is anticipated that once the latter are completed, they will be combined with the former as a single textbook. During their developmental phase, these notes will be updated each semester using student feedback as well as experience gained from classroom usage.

Advice to Engr 353 Students Engr 353, Electronics , provides the foundation for all subsequent electronics courses in the EE curriculum, and, hence, for your entire career as an electronics engineer. The objective of this course is not only to introduce you to new devices, such as pn diodes and transistors , but also to help you establish a thinking style and develop a problem-solving methodology that are unique to this most interesting and challenging field. In recognition of the fact that the majority of our graduates end up working in high-tech industry, these notes emphasize those practical aspects that are of relevance to today’s industrial milieu. Whether you will pursue a career as a design engineer, a product engineer, a test engineer, or an applications engineer, the basic material of Engr 353 will always resurface in a variety of ever changing situations, so you may wish to invest far more time and effort in this one course than you would normally do. Even though diodes and transistors are highly nonlinear devices, special techniques have been developed for their analysis that draw quite heavily from those covered by linear-circuits courses. So, far from being a waste of time, the analytical tools learned in prerequisite courses such as our Engr 205 will be put to heavy use also in the study of electronics. Specifically, Ohm’s Law , Kircchoff’s Laws (KVL and KCL), Nodal/Loop Analysis , Thévenin’s/Norton’s Theorems , the Superposition Principle , and the Op Amp Rule will continue to be our precious analytical tools as we venture into the exciting realm of electronics. To perform well in Engr 353, you need to possess more than just a passing familiarity with the above tools. If you have forgotten them, or
