Grading PolicyFinal Examination: 40% Homework: 10% Lab Reports: 10% Attendance and Participation: 5% Course Materials and AssignmentsLab Report Writing GuideClick here for a unified guide to writing lab reports. Lab Reports are to be soft copy only (computer files, not paper copies). Send them by email to both Dr. Beard at no_spam_jkbeard@jameskbeard.com, and to Dr. Pietrucha at pietrucha@rowan.edu . Do not use large file formats such as uncompressed BMP for graphics; use a platformindependent compressed form such as JPEG, or you will find it difficult to email your reports and your grades will be delayed.

Lab 6 not present Due DatesAll homework and lab reports are due one week from the date of assignment. All homework assignments will be posted on this page. Late homework will not be accepted. Late lab reports will not be accepted. ClassesAll homework is
posted here. Lecture topics are
tentative and will be adjusted as the course proceeds. Week 1 Tuesday, March 6; Kirchhoff's Voltage and Current Laws, Thévenin and Norton Equivalent Circuits Read Chapter 1 Wednesday, March 7; Voltage and Current Division, SteadyState Sine Wave Circuits, Capacitive and Inductive Impedance Read Chapter 2 (skip 2.5), Chapter 3 (skip 3.4, 3.5) Friday, March 9, Lab 1 Exercises 1.1, 1.5, 1.12; problems 1.1, 1.3, 1.7; assigned by email, 12:07 PM March 9 Week 2: Spring Break Week 3 Tuesday, March 20; The Ideal OpAmp, Simple OpAmp Circuits Wednesday, March 21; OpAmp Difference Amplifier, Summation Amplifier, OpAmp Integrator and Differentiator Read Chapter 5 (skip 5.5) Problems, Chapter 1 pages 2836, problems 1.51, 1.65, 1.99 Problems, Chapter 2 pages 87105, problems 2.3, 2.8, 2.24 Friday, March 23, Lab 2 Week 4 Tuesday, March 27; Diodes; Biasing of BJT Amplifiers Read Chapter 6 Problems pp 368387; do 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 Wednesday, March 28; Operating Regions and Load Lines Read Chapter 7. Problems, Ch. 3, 3.21 on page 159. Note that Figure 3.18 is on page 120. For vi curves see text Chapter 1, Section 1.3 pages 46, and example of a load line type curve in Figure 10 on page 9. For load lines in diode circuits, see Chapter 2 Section 3.2, pages 111112. This concept is what we use whenever we have a nonlinear circuit element like a diode, or an active circuit element with variable vi curves like a transistor. See more diode load line examples on pages 122 and 123. Look at constant voltage drop model of a diode at the bottom of page 145. For a notional comparison of a single transistor amplifier with an opamp, compare the writeup for this class with the simplified schematic of an LM741 opamp as given on page 769 in Chapter 12. Note that Electronics I will not get this far in the book. Compare our BJT inverting amplifier with Section 2.4.3, [OpAmp] Inverting Amplifier, pages 4547.
