Electronic Devices and Circuits (ELEC2104)
UNIT OF STUDY
Modern Electronics has come to be known as microelectronics which refers to the Integrated Circuits (ICs) containing millions of discrete devices. This course introduces some of the basic electronic devices like diodes and different types of transistors. It also aims to introduce students the analysis and design techniques of circuits involving these discrete devices as well as the integrated circuits.
Completion of this course is essential to specialize in Electrical, Telecommunication or Computer Engineering stream. The knowledge of ELEC1103 is assumed.
