Introduction to electronic circuits and systems. Methods of circuit analysis to create functions from devices, including resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, and transistors, in conjunction with op-amps. Quantitative focus on DC and higher-frequency signals using linear systems theory. A major emphasis on intuition, with labs organized as mini projects (1. Touch-screen controller, 2. Radio, 3. Brain-machine interface), where students pursue design (using op-amps and micro controllers), simulations (using SPICE), and analysis (both by hand and using MATLAB).
