  2. Summative
SYNOPSIS:

 

This course covers field effect transistors, and the theory and circuit applications of operational amplifiers. The working principles of field effect transistors are looked at, and the FET amplifier circuit analysed. Basic op-amp circuits using ideal operational amplifiers are constructed, practical op-amp parameters are studied, and finally the design and analysis of switching circuits, filters, oscillators, and voltage regulators are covered.
MODE OF DELIVERY: Lecture, Tutorial, Lab Practical, Group Work, Assignment.
