Course Outcomes: 

Simple Analog Circuits

Build and debug basic analog circuits that are of practical use in experimental physics such as voltage dividers, diode rectifiers, inverting and non-inverting op amp circuits, and transistor switches.

Voltage, Current, Resistance, Power, and Circuit Analysis

Demonstrate understanding of electrical concepts of voltage, current, resistance, power, and input and output resistance through the analysis of simple circuits.

Sources and Test Equipment

Demonstrate proper use and limitations of electrical sources and test equipment including DC power supplies, multimeters, oscilloscopes, and function generators.

Simple Digital Circuits

Build and debug basic digital circuits that use components such as digital gates, flipflops, counters, and digital to analog converters.
