    EEE210: Electronic Devices and Circuits

    This course introduces the electronic components that are used to implement the circuits found in most electrical systems. Students completing this course will be able to design and analyze wave shaping circuits, voltage rectifiers and regulators, low-power amplifiers, and digital logic gates. The course includes a significant laboratory component in which the students build diode and transistor circuits for a variety of low-power analog and digital applications. Topics include: the junction diode; field effect transistors; MOSFETs; diode circuits; the analysis and design of single stage low-power amplifiers; small signal models; and, the static and dynamic analysis of the CMOS inverter.

  7. Reminder ...
    Academic misconduct, including plagiarism, cheating, and other violations of academic ethics, is a serious academic infraction for which penalties may range from a recorded caution to expulsion from the College. The RMCC Academic Regulations Section 23 defines plagiarism as: “Using the work of others and attempting to present it as original thought, prose or work. This includes failure to appropriately acknowledge a source, misrepresentation of cited work, and misuse of quotation marks or attribution.” It also includes “the failure to acknowledge that work has been submitted for credit elsewhere.” All students should consult the published statements on Academic Misconduct contained in the Royal Military College of Canada Undergraduate Calendar, Section 23.
