PHY 4730 - Analog Systems

The theory and operation of DC and AC circuits with discrete passive and active components. Included are resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, bipolar transistors, field effect transistors, and operational amplifiers. An in-depth analysis of circuit theorems, phasors, differential equations, and simulations predicting the behavior of systems of analog devices will be explored in lecture and laboratory. The use and limitations of common electronics instrumentation such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, modulators/demodulators, lock-in amplifiers, and phase detection will also be explored. Lecture two hours, laboratory three hours. Corequisite: PHY 3210 or consent of the instructor. [Dual-listed with PHY 5730.] Dual-listed courses require senior standing; juniors may enroll with permission of the department.
