This course will give an introduction to working with electronic circuits. No previous experience with electronics is required. Students will be taught how to think about circuits, how the basic components work and how to combine them to produce more complex designs. This class will feature short lectures covering the topics followed by hands-on time with circuits for the student to experience first-hand how the circuits work and what the effects of modifying them are. Each week will introduce progressively more advanced projects that build upon concepts learned in the earlier lessons.
Topics will include:
- Passive components (resistors, capacitors, inductors)Basic semiconductor usage (diodes and transistors)
- Basic semiconductor usage (diodes and transistors)Operational amplifiers and how to use feedback in circuits.
- Operational amplifiers and how to use feedback in circuits.Using more complex integrated circuits in designs
- Using more complex integrated circuits in designs
