This is an introductory course in electronic circuits that extends DC-AC circuits into active devices and their associated circuitry. Diodes; bipolar junction and field-effect transistors; and four-layer devices are studied. Topics also include the transistor as a small signal amplifier and as a switching element, op-amp circuits, and interfacing circuits common to computer applications.
