A systems level approach to electronics and electrical devices will be used to analyze semiconductor applications including integrated circuits, power supplies, transistors, amplifiers, and digital logic families. Circuits will be bench tested, and integrated with others to meet system requirements. Design modifications, circuit improvements, component protection and application to other areas of engineering technology will be emphasized as designs are developed into working prototypes. Group 2 course.
