Instructor: Chang-Ching Tu

Instructors (Faculty):

Credits: 4 credits

Pre-requisites: Ve 216


Working principles of nonlinear semiconductor devices, including diode, BJT and MOSFET, and analog circuits based on those devices, such as voltage regulators, rectifiers, single stage amplifiers, current mirrors and differential pair amplifiers. Circuit analysis by hand-calculation with proper approximations. Comparison of hand-calculation results with Pspice simulation results. Building and analyzing circuits on simulation tool (such as Proteus) as well as on breadboard.
