94L122Q Circuits and Electronics

(4 Credits, 64 Hours; Course Category: Specialty Basic Course; Specialty: Mechanical Engineering and Automation International Class; Prerequisite: Calculus, Geometry and Algebra)
This course is designed to serve as a specialty basic course for international class of Mechanical Engineering and Automation discipline.
The course introduces the fundamentals and basic skills related to electric circuit, digital and analog electronics, and prepares students for succeeding courses (ie. automatic control theory). It covers three parts. The first part is electric circuit analysis. It covers AC and DC steady state circuit analysis related fundamentals and methods as well as first order circuit dynamic analysis. The second part is analog electronics. Topics covered include: diodes, transistors and amplifier. The third part is digital electronics. It covers digital systems and sequential logic.
Lab exercises are also treated as the significant component of the course.
