Introductory Analog Electronics Laboratory: Course Description

Through readings, lab exercises and problem sets, students using the course materials from MIT's 'Introductory Analog Electronics Laboratory' explore the basics of analog electronic circuits. Ron Roscoe, who developed these course materials, emphasizes the practical application of circuits in manufacturing and industrial applications. Lab exercises help to illustrate principles and encourage students to design their own circuits. Readings cover a variety of topics, including components, diodes, bipolar transistors, junction field-effect transistors, 2-transistor amplifiers and operational amplifiers. Ideally suited for undergraduate students earning a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science, these course materials provide a broad foundation of knowledge for any student seeking knowledge of analog electronics.

The free OpenCourseWare includes a list of readings, lab exercises, five problem sets with solutions, practice quizzes and review sheets, handouts, a comprehensive list of related resources and a video of a completed student project.
