ECE 29595 - Electrical & Computer Engineering Fundamentals II (Now runs as ECE 20002)Lecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3
Experimental Course Offered: Spring 2018, Spring 2019
ECE 29595 Electrical and Computer Engineering Fundamentals I (Minimum Grade of C) and MA 26200 [may be taken concurrently] or MA 26600 [may be taken concurrently] or MA 366 [may be taken concurrently]).
Requisites by Topic:
Prerequisites: Elementary linear circuit analysis including dc, transient, and phasor techniques. Concurrent Prerequisites: Differential equations.
Continuation of Electrical and Computer Engineering Fundamentals I. The course addresses mathematical and computational foundations of circuit analysis (differential equations, Laplace Transform techniques) with a focus on application to linear circuits having variable behavior as a function of frequency, with emphasis on filtering. Variable frequency behavior is further considered for applications of electronic components through single-transistor and operational amplifiers. The course ends with consideration of how circuits behave and may be modeled for analysis at high frequencies.
- Class notes will be provided in class..
Recommended Text(s): None.
