ELEC 236 Semiconductor Devices* (4 Hours)
Prerequisites or corequisites: ELEC 234.
Topics for this class include the analysis and understanding of diodes and transistors. Special purpose diodes, bipolar junction transistors (BJT) and field effect transistors (FET) will be examined. Additional topics include operational amplifiers (Op-Amps), four-layer semiconductor devices and voltage regulators. Op-Amp applications will cover comparators, summing amplifiers, integrators, differentiators and active filters. 3 hrs. lecture and 3 hrs. lab/wk.
