Top Online Courses in Electronics and Telecommunication in North America. Course in Introduction to Electronics This course introduces students to the basic components of electronics: diodes, transistors, and op amps. It covers the basic operation and some common applications. About the Course This course is a basic overview of electronic components and their common uses. It covers diodes, transistors, and op amps. Laboratory demonstrations are given to reinforce the concepts learned from the lectures and homework. The course is targeted at people with a scientific or technical background who are not electrical or computer engineers. The coverage is not as deep as an electronics course aimed at electrical or computer engineers. There are a number of physical applications demonstrated in this course that serve to motivate this topic to a wider audience. Course Syllabus The course is broken into four modules, several have an associated homework and a quiz: Module 1: Background Review of linear circuits and frequency response fundamentals Module 2: Op Amps Ideal Behavior; common resistor circuits; common RC circuits; applications: amplifiers, and filters Module 3: Diodes pn junctions; Ideal diodes; diodes with a turn-on voltage; circuits with ideal diodes; rectifiers; limiters; regulators Module 4: Transistors Overview of the physics of MOSFETs; MOSFETS in amplifiers and in digital logic circuits Grading and Certificate: Grading will be based on homework (80%) and four quizzes (20%) based on the four modules. A minimum grade of 70% is needed to earn a certificate of completion. Recommended Background Students taking this course should have a good understanding of basic circuits including resistive circuits, RLC circuits, AC behavior, and frequency analysis. A good preparation for this course is the Georgia Tech Linear Systems Coursera course. Suggested Readings This course is self-contained, but there are many online sources that can used for reference. These can be found by searching key words: op amps (or operational amplifiers), diodes, transistors. Course Format This class will consist of lecture videos, most of which are between 10 and 12 minutes in length. There will be required homework assignments and quizzes and optional laboratory assignments.
