Electronic Devices and Applications

Course/Workshop Title: Electronic Devices and Applications
Course/Workshop Duration: 5 Days
Course Overview: This course is the first course in the operation of electronic devices and their applications in analog and digital circuits. The lecture component covers device physics of semiconductor materials and modeling of diodes, field effect transistors (FETs), and bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), applications of diodes as a rectifier and regulator (AC to DC conversion, Zener regulator) and transistors applications in amplification and switching (digital logic gates such as AND, OR, NOT, NOR and NAND gates).

This one week workshop in electric circuits is intended to meet the demand for electrical technicians who are trained to gain knowledge in first course in electronics.
Expected Learning Outcomes / Competencies By the end of this workshop, you should:
  1. Be able to accurately define current, voltage, and power in diode circuits
  2. Be able to accurately calculate the current-voltage characteristics of diode, FETs, and BJTs
  3. Be able to use device models for diodes and transistors
  4. Be able to define the small-signal characteristics of FETs and BJTs
  5. Be able to design and implement electronic circuit applications using diodes and transistors.
  6. Be able to use FETs and BJTs ac models in analysis and design of amplifier circuits.
  7. Be able to use diodes and transistors in designing and implementing digital logic gates.
  8. Be able to understand diode and transistor power ratings and other parameters to select the appropriate device to an application
