such as diodes and transistors, it will also focus heavily on the applications of these circuits. We also hope, in at least one assignment, to have you build an actual product which you will keep . This will be subject to availability of the design space and materials. Tentatively there will be four design assignments, the weight of each to be announced with the assignment. The assignments are individual, and you will be expected to significantly document your design process , which includes an explanation and mathematical analysis of your final design. Later design assignments will require you to specify real-world components in your designs. A detailed set of instructions (including formatting, deliverables, and other common questions) will be posted with each assignment. The first assignments will be provided roughly one week before we complete each major section in the course (filter design, diodes, and MOSFETs). The final assignment‟s timing will depend on access to the departmental Makerspace, which will be announced later in the term. We will ensure that you will have roughly two weeks to complete each assignment, with the exception of the build-focused assignment (which may extend slightly longer). Exact dates and deadlines will be posted with each assignment. Midterm and Final Exam The midterm is scheduled for: March 8 th , 7:30 - 9:30PM, EX100 Note: This is tentative , room and time will be confirmed via. Blackboard announcement later! The midterm and final exam are closed-book, closed-notes . A university-approved calculator and writing material are the only other material allowed. The coverage of the midterm will be announced multiple times in class during the weeks before the midterm. Please do not send e-mails to the TAs or instructor asking what topics will be covered. If, for any reason, you are absent from the midterm, you must submit a coursework petition form, available online at the link provided below. Please do not send confidential documents (medical notes, etc.) or requests for accommodation directly to the instructor or TAs; we cannot help you until the online process is complete. Should you miss the midterm (for a valid reason), the weight of your final exam will be increased to compensate. We are not able to provide individual make-up midterms, for reasons of fairness and academic integrity. Similarly, we cannot increase the weight of design assignments or labs to replace midterm weight; these are not considered closely supervised term work. Please see the following for information about valid reasons to petition: Please see the following link to submit a petition for a missed midterm, or for any other coursework you miss or are otherwise unable to hand in:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
