ELEC 109 - Linear, Analog Circuits and Devices

Unit(s): 4

Prerequisite: ELEC 101 and 102
Transfers to: CSU

This course focuses on linear analog circuits and devices used in the field of electronics. Emphasis is on the theory of operation, methods of fabrication, physical properties, and characteristics of operational amplifiers, other discrete circuits, and external circuitry. The course builds on the foundations students have learned in previous electronics courses, continuing the study of solid state devices and circuits with an emphasis on integrated circuits (ICs) and applications. Students analyze circuits and solve problems utilizing basic network analysis methods, exploring IC device characteristics and considering the topics of input/output impedance, drift, offset, bias current, gain, frequency response, and simple modeling. Device data sheets and application notes are introduced to provide training in the selection of devices for specific purposes. Laboratory work provides experience with the design and testing of basic solid state device circuits, including signal tracing and troubleshooting, use of meters, schematic diagrams, oscilloscopes, and common laboratory equipment. This course is for students who are contemplating a career in the electrical/electronics industry and is part of the preparation leading to an A.S. degree in Electronics Technology.
