Introduction to electronics, diodes, linear and non-linear circuit applications. Bipolar junction and field-effect transistors: physical structures and modes of operation. DC analysis of transistor circuits. The CMOS inverter. The transistor as an amplifier and as a switch. Transistor amplifiers: small signal models, biasing of discrete circuits, and single-stage amplifier circuits. Biasing of BJT integrated circuits. Multi-stage and differential amplifiers. Current sources and current mirrors. Important concepts are illustrated with structured lab experiments and through the use of Electronic workbench circuit simulations.
