Title: ELECTRONICS LABORATORY II
Catalog Description: Single and multistage transistor amplifiers; feedback in electronic circuits and frequency response. Multivibrator circuits, Logic gates and operational amplifiers.
Prerequisites: EE 333 and EE 335.
Coordinator: Oğuzhan Çiçekoğlu, Professor of Electrical Engineering
Goals: This course aims to provide students with practical aspects of electronic circuits. Measuring techniques and practical experience and observations about the deviations from pure theory helps to make real life designs possible.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1. Measure various properties of an electronic circuit
2. Select an appropriate physical element for an engineering design.
3. Evaluate and discuss the differences and deviations in real life from the presented theory in lectures
4. Design (in connection with EE334) a BJT, MOS transistor or opamp circuit considering practical limitations or real life aspects
Prerequisites by Topic:
1. Basic Circuit Theory, mesh, nodal analysis, superposition theorem, Thevenin and Norton Equivalents, Dependent and independent sources, Capacitors, inductors in time and frequency domain
2. Basic Electronics such as diodes, transistors, transistor amplifiers, feedback, current sources and others
* Experiment 1. Diode Clipping and Clamping Circuits
* Experiment 2. Transistor Biasing
* Experiment 3. Measurement of Transistor Parameters
* Experiment 4. RC-Coupled Single Stage Amplifiers
* Experiment 5. Field Effect Transistors

* Experiment 9. Comparator Circuits
* Experiment 10. Schmitt Triggers and Multivibrator
Course Structure: The class meets for one lecture a week, consisting of a 50-minute session. There are Laboratory sessions 2-3 hours a week. There are one in-class midterm exam and a final exam.
Computer Resources: There are 6 meetings. Circuits are simulated on SPICE.
Laboratory Resources: None.
1. Lab Performance (30%)
2. Reports (30%)
3. Midterm (20%)
4. Final (20%)
*An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data: Students perform experiments in the laboratory and then they write reports
