This in-depth theory and lab course introduces the student to the fundamentals of electronic semiconductor diodes and transistors and their basic circuits. The course emphasizes understanding of semiconductor devices through their terminal behavior and data sheet parameters. Students will explore diodes and introductory single transistor circuits in the weekly lab and computer simulations. Students will use this fundamental knowledge for future electronic courses dealing with communications, computers and controls.
