ENGS 61 Intermediate Electrical Circuits

This course will build on ENGS 32, providing a foundation for transistor- level analog and digital circuit design. The course will start with an introduction to the semiconductor industry and how it has dramatically altered the modern way of life, resulting in diverse technologies such as telecommunications, lighting and transportation. This will lead into basic semiconductor theory and CMOS device models, two-port linearized models, and finally single- and multi-stage amplifiers with applications motivated by wireless communications and biomedical instrumentation. The second half of the class will focus on digital circuits. Topics will include designing and optimizing complex static CMOS devices in terms of energy, delay, and area of computational blocks and memory arrays. The class will have weekly labs and a final project that will utilize modern computer-aided tools. The course will prepare the student for advanced study of highly-integrated electrical circuits.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
