This course is intended for 2nd-year undergraduates in the computer science and other engineering department. We will introduce the basic concepts of electric circuits first. It starts from the definition of current, voltage, power and energy. Then it covers the basic circuit components including resister, capacitor, and inductor. We also discuss the basic circuit analysis, such as nodal analysis of resistive circuits, transients in electrical circuits and sinusoidal steady-state circuit behavior.

For electronics section, we will present the diode and MOS field-effect transistor. We will use simple models to describe these electronic devices and their I-V characteristics. Since the majority of electronic circuits today are designed as integrated circuits (ICs),

we will discuss how to analyze and design the basic elements of integrated circuits with the emphasis on digital logic designs.
