General Information

I. Catalog Course Description

Prerequisites: ET131 or consent of instructor

Familiarizes students with important electronic components, their schematic symbols and how to wire circuits on a solderless circuit board using diagrams. Introduces semiconductors, diodes, and basic theory of transistors and transistor amplifier configurations. Students conduct laboratory experiments and build electronic circuits utilizing these components. Soldering is introduced.

II: Course Objectives

Continuation of ET 131 covers the basics of AC circuits and devices including resistors, capacitors, inductors, and semiconductors. Introduces fundamental waveforms such as sine waves and pulses and their behavior in solid state circuits. DC concepts will be reviewed and incorporated. Time is spent in laboratory, conducting experiments where students apply the theoretical concepts and learn to use standard laboratory instruments.

  • Enable student acquire knowledge in the area of AC electric circuits.
  • Provide student with opportunities to gain hands on experience and solidify their understanding of theory with experiments and demonstrations.

III: Course Linkage
