Covers basic functionality of diodes, BJT and (MOS)FET transistors in electronic circuits – finding DC terminal voltages and currents (biasing), calculating low and high frequency response of electronic circuits (includes single-stage, differential & multi-stage amplifiers), calculating input and output impedances, and applying feedback in electronic circuit design. Laboratory covers analog circuits from lectures with emphasis on design of such circuits. Prerequisite: ES 230 Electronics I, or consent of the instructor. Required Textbook: Adel S. Sedra & Kenneth C. Smith, Microelectronic Circuits, 7th edition, Oxford University Press, New York, 2015. ISBN 978-0-19-933913-6 (Note: Must be the seventh edition.) ES330 Class Website: The ES 330 Website is found at: http://www.sonoma.edu/esee/courses/es330/ Homework, solutions to homework problems, formal assignments and handout notes are available on the ES 330 Electronics Website. Course Learning Objectives: Upon completion of ES 330, a student will be able to: A. Apply fundamental device and circuit design concepts to a variety of analog semiconductor electronic circuits B. Apply the core operational principles of semiconductor devices (e.g., bipolar junction transistor and MOS field-effect transistor) to electronic circuit design C. Calculate terminal voltages and currents (i.e., DC bias points) in electronic circuits D. Apply AC small-signal transistor models for analyzing and designing electronic circuit performance E. Calculate important performance parameters of electronic circuits F. Analyze differential circuit configurations with application to Differential pairs, operational amplifiers, DC amplifiers and Gilbert multipliers G. Understand and appreciate the differences involved in the design of discrete electronic circuits versus design of silicon transistor integrated circuits H. Demonstrate an ability to make electrical measurements on such electronic circuits and write formal laboratory reports I. Develop critical thinking skills through electronic circuit analysis and design Course Grading: Homework assignments (approximately weekly) Two midterms Final examination Laboratory exercises Total = 25% 25% 25% 25% 100% Grading: 95 to 100 is an A 87 to 89 is a B+ 80 to 82 is a B73 to 76 is a C 67 to 69 is a D+ 60 to 62 is a D- and 90 to 94 is an A83 to 86 is a B 77 to 79 is a C+ 70 to 72 is a C63 to 66 is a D 0 to 59 is an F The class grade will be based upon the following activities: 1. Homework: Homework will be assigned approximately weekly. Homework is an important part of the process of learning for engineers and homework will both reinforce topics covered in class and introduce auxiliary topics which extend the material covered in lectures. Homework must be turned in by the end of the class period of the day it is due. Late homework will be penalized by subtracting 20% per day from its score. No homework will be accepted after 5 days. 2. Examinations: There will be three exams during the semester – two midterms and one final examination. Together they contribute to one-half of the course grade. Examinations are based upon class lectures, assigned reading in the textbook and worked homework problems. The final examination will test the content of the entire course and the student’s ability to apply the principles learned during the course. A student will receive a grade of 0 (zero) if he or she does not appear for an exam without a prior acceptable excuse. You must let the instructor know in advance if you must miss an examination, at which time you will be given an opportunity to take the examination early by special arrangement. There may also be unannounced short “shock quizzes” at any time at the discretion of the instructor. No makeup is possible for missing a “shock quiz” and their scores are included in the midterm scores. 3. Laboratory assignments: Construct selected electronic circuits and perform appropriate electrical measurements on these circuits. Specific questions will be asked for each exercise. A circuit design project may be assigned. Formal laboratory reports are required which summarize and present the results of each assigned laboratory experiment. 4. Class attendance and participation: Regular attendance is strongly encouraged because course content beyond that of the textbook may be presented and clarifying examples may be worked out in class. In addition, questions during lectures are strongly encouraged to clarify course material. The instructor believes that if a student must miss a class session that out of courtesy they must notify the instructor before the class. For SSU policies on class attendance see http://www.sonoma.edu/uaffairs/policies/studentinfo.shtml 4. Academic Honesty: You are responsible to behave ethically & honestly. Copying, cheating, forgery, and other unethical or dishonest actions are not tolerated, will result in a zero grade, and may be reported to SSU authorities. For more information on the SSU academic honesty policy please refer to http://www.sonoma.edu/uaffairs/policies/cheating_plagiarism.htm 5. Learning Disabilities: Students requiring special accommodations should meet with the instructor the first or second week of the course to discuss how to meet their needs during the semester. Prior to meeting with the instructor, be sure your have met with the SSU Disability Services office on the first floor of Salazar Hall to be familiar with their policies. You may consult their website at http://www.sonoma.edu/uaffairs/policies/disabilitypolicy.htm 6. Other SSU policies: Be sure you understand the policies that specifically affect you as a student of this course. For example: Add/Drop Policy: http://www.sonoma.edu/uaffairs/policies/disabilitypolicy Grade Appeal Policy: http://www.sonoma.edu/uaffairs/policies/gradepolicy.htm 7. Civility: Keep cell phones and pagers TURNED OFF during the entire lecture and lab period – no exceptions! Show respect for your fellow students and keep in mind that SSU is a learning environment. If for some reason issues arise during the semester, please inform the instructor of the situation so that they can be resolved.
