Preamble
This foundational Course, like many others you will do in the first two years in Engineering
School, is intended to give you the ground-breaking knowledge and skill which will propel
you into becoming the Computer Engineer that you intend to be.
Key word: Engineering-Purposeful use of Science!
So Why Study Electronics in Computer Engineering?
Electronics is foundational material for computer engineering. The computer is an electronic
device whose development is highly dependent on advances in the electronics industry. For this
reason, it is mandatory for a student to have basic knowledge of the design of the electronic
circuits used to implement computers.
Our Course Objectives
This course will provide a foundation for other courses like CMP 1202 (Electronics II), CMP 2102
(Electric Circuits and Signals), CMP 2203 (Digital Logic), ELE3101 (Applied Analogue Electronics)
and ELE3102 (Applied Digital Electronics). Therefore, do not expect to build any electronic
gadget from scratch at the end of this semester. Most electronic systems are not designed at
once by individuals but are evolutionally, as we will soon see. Let us first establish reasonable
goals for the course. We will try to achieve:

An understanding of how electronic devices such as semiconductor diodes are modelled
and how the models are used in the design and analysis of useful circuits.

The capability to design and construct circuits, take measurements of circuit behaviour
and performance, compare with predicted circuit models and explain discrepancies.

I suggest you make use of several resources and information tools available at your disposal,
namely: Text books, data books, periodicals and above all, the internet if you want to have a
successful hobby in electronics. The electronic field is dynamic and your knowledge risks
becoming obsolete soon if you do not make an effort to update it. Here are some books you
might find useful:
