EECS 311: Electronic Circuits

Instructor: Professor David Wentzloff

EECS 311 covers single-transistor amplifier design and analysis of circuits commonly used in audio amplifiers, wireless radios, and several other interface applications. Non-linear, large-signal models for diodes, MOSFETs, and BJTs are introduced. The concept of biasing transistors at an operating point and analyzing gain and frequency response using small-signal analysis is also covered. Active filters and non-ideal operational amplifiers are also reviewed. Common amplifier topologies and design strategies are analyzed, and students implement these through a series of lab experiments.

Lab 1: Active Filters
Lab 2: Non-Ideal Opamps
Lab 3: Perpetual LED
Lab 4: Single-Stage Amplifier
Lab 5: Three-Stage Amplifier
Lab 6: Common-Gate Amplifier
