INCLUDED COURSE LABS

SEMICONDUCTOR ANALYSIS 

Students are introduced to the three building blocks of microelectronics: diodes, BJTs, and MOSFETs. Students will explore how these components interact with voltage and current and how these properties can be used and combined in different ways for different applications.

MICROELECTRONIC CIRCUIT IMPLEMENTATION 

Students apply I-V characteristics of diodes and transistors to common applications such as rectifiers and amplifiers and learn how I-V characteristics impact an applied circuit.

OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIERS 

Students are introduced to the operational amplifier as a core component of analog electronic design. They will explore the behavior of the operational amplifier, comparing ideal vs non-ideal models as well as different operational amplifier topologies: inverting & non-inverting; summing & difference; and integrating

MICROELECTRONIC CIRCUIT APPLICATIONS 

Introduction to semiconductor design restraints such as reference voltage generation, temperature-dependent device characteristics, and component selection in the context of real world applications such as audio amplification and temperature sensing.
