Basic electronic semiconductor components, their principles, characteristics and typical connection diagrams. Semiconductor PN junction diodes, transistors, thyristor, operational amplifiers, basic logic gates. Functions of basic electronic circuits and methods for their designs (rectifiers, voltage regulator with Zener diode, transistor as an amplifier, operational amplifier as an inverting and noninverting amplifier).
Students know the basic electronic components. Students are able to design simple electronic circuits built from both individual discrete semiconductor components and basic integrated circuits.
