PHYS 3340 - Electronics

3 Class Hours 2 Laboratory Hours 4 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: A grade of “C” or better in PHYS 1112 or 2212.
The primary objective of this course is to present the fundamental principles of analog and digital electronic circuitry and their application to modern technology. The course will begin with basic DC and AC circuits with resistors, inductors and capacitors. Next the p-n junction will be discussed and its use in diodes and transistors, with a particular emphasis on applications for signal processing. The course will finish with the development of logic gates and flip-flops and their use in digital electronics. This course will serve the student in the understanding of basic workings of instruments as well as everyday electronic devices. The lab involves hands-on work with both analog and digital electronic components.
