ELEC 208 - Advanced Solid State Devices and Circuits

Unit(s): 4

Prerequisite: ELEC 108
Transfers to: CSU

This course is a continuation of the study of solid state devices used in the field of electronics presented in the introductory course ELEC 108. Emphasis is on the theory of operation, physical properties and characteristics of advanced semiconductor devices and circuits. Devices considered are advanced design transistors, silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs) and other digital and analog integrated circuits (ICs), typical applications of each device in inverters, converters, and switching power supplies. Students analyze circuits and solve problems utilizing basic network analysis methods with an emphasis on advanced biasing, cascading, coupling, and phase shifting. Laboratory work provides experience with the design and testing of advanced solid state device circuits including signal tracing and troubleshooting, schematic diagrams, 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 or a Certificate in Electronics Technology.
