Semiconductor Devices and Circuits (2301ENG)

This course introduces the basic semiconductor concepts, the principles of diode and transistor operation, and the fundamental transistor circuits (common amplifier topologies, op-amp building blocks, and low-frequency amplifiers). Circuit simulation (SPICE) with appropriately set device parameters and simplified equivalent circuits are used for circuit analysis. Circuit design is based on circuit analysis and is facilitated by an understanding of semiconductor properties and device operation. Laboratory exercises will complement the teaching approach for this course. Incompatible: 2030MEE Microelectronic Circuits Prerequisites: 1301ENG Electric Circuits and 1302ENG Introduction to Electronics
