Course Summary

ECE100 is a third year course in analog electronic systems. It is designed to build upon material learned in ECE35, ECE45 and ECE65. It introduces ECE students to practical circuits and solving real-world problems. In this course students will learn to model and design practical circuits using idealized circuit models, to account for the interactions among various parts of a circuit, the concept of feedback, and a host of other issues encountered in designing a practical circuit. We will also examine how feedback concepts can be applied to a variety of system applications. This is a very “hands-on” course – you will be building and simulating a lot of different and interesting things. It is also a very tough class. Expect to move fast. Please plan to spend at least ten hours per week outside of class (if you want a good grade).


ECE35 and 45 are required. ECE65 is highly recommended but not required.
