Catalog Description:Conduction mechanism in metals and semiconductors. Doping in semiconductors; p-n junction. Diode characteristics and applications. Power supplies. Bipolar junction transistor operation. Transistor characteristics, transistor biasing. JFET operation and biasing. MOSFET operation and biasing. Introduction to digital electronics. Logic families: RTL, DTL, TTL, ECL, NMOS and CMOS. MSI logic: Multiplexers, Decoders, etc. Memory circuits: ROM’s and RAM’s.
Coordinator: Oğuzhan Çiçekoğlu, Professor of Electrical Engineering

Goals: This course’s goal is to get the 2nd year Computer Engineering students acquainted with the basics of analog and digital electronics. They will be introduced to semiconductors and the transistors, their modes of operation in the first part of the course. The digital electronics part will be on the basic concepts of digital electronics and the underlying electronics of some commonly used digital circuits.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

      1. have an understanding of the operation of a pn-junction
      2. Analyze a BJT or FET circuits in terms of DC and synthesize DC biasing circuits for transistors
      3. have an understanding about the characteristics of digital circuits (voltage levels, noise margins, etc.)
      4. Analyze a and synthesize various digital logic circuits
      5. have an understanding of the operation principles of common digital circuit applications, be able to analyze these circuits
      6. be able to design simple analog and digital circuits
