Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This paper introduces analog and digital electronics. It assumes a familiarity with voltage, current flow, conductors & insulators, algebra, and the use of data graphs at upper high-school level. The course covers resistors, capacitors and inductors, dc circuit theory, nonlinearity, diodes, combinational logic circuits, latches and memory.

Students attend classes and laboratory on 12 days spread over a period of 6 weeks. Classes will be “flipped” with online video vignettes replacing lectures. A minimum of 2 hours of interactive classes and 3 hours of laboratory work is expected on each scheduled day.

Semester T is six-week semester, one week in semester T is equivalent to two weeks in an ordinary semester.
