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 to succeed.


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