Prerequisite: PHYS374 or PHYS405; or students who have taken courses with comparable content may contact the department. Restriction: Must not have completed PHYS485. Credit only granted for: PHYS485 or PHYS685. An integrated lecture and laboratory course in electronics with equal emphasis on experimental methods and results and analysis using device models and up-to-date mathematical and numerical tools. Experiments and analysis of circuits with passive and single active devices form the background for the study of operational amplifiers, digital integrated circuits and systems, and microcomputers. The general topics of impedance matching, frequency response, feedback, interfacing and the extraction of signal from noise are stressed.
