Linear Active Circuits Laboratory (E C E 306) Syllabus
Course Learning Outcomes
    Course Learning Outcome
  • 1
    Learn how real op-amps differ from ideal op-amps and what that means to the circuit you are implementing.
  • 2
    Understand classic feedback topologies by implementing 2 of the four forms.
  • 3
    This yields an understanding of negative feedback and the benefits/cost of it.
  • 4
    Implement common collector and common emitter single transistor amplifiers.
  • 5
    Understand what the performance capabilities of each amplifier can do for you.
  • 6
    Study biasing and performance class AB and class B bipolar transistor output stages.
  • 7
    The student will learn about efficiency and thermal issues for these type of output stages.
  • 8
    Active filters based on a single op-amp are studied.
  • 9
    The student will learn how the individual components that make up several classic filter circuits affect the transfer functions.
  • 10
    Sin wave oscillator circuits based on a single op-amp are studied.
  • 11
    The student learns how to use R’s, C’s, positive and negative feedback to cause a controlled sinusoidal oscillation.
