Nonlinear Circuits and Devices - ELEC275

This unit builds on ELEC270 and introduces non-linear and active circuit elements in theory and in the laboratory. The goal is to understand and apply simple electronic design to active circuits like amplifiers, wave shaping circuits, rectifiers etc. It consists of 4 modules: operational amplifiers, diodes, BJTs and MOSFETs. The operational principles of each device are discussed and applied to circuit design. Models for circuit analysis are presented for each device including large and small signal analysis. Computer simulation and analysis of simple circuits using the AWR package is introduced and used in the laboratory. Laboratory sessions also include biulding and testing circuits including time-domain measurements.
