ENT 108: DC AND AC CIRCUITS

In this course, students learn to analyze DC and AC passive circuits using Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's laws and Superposition. RC and RL circuits are analyzed for impedance and phase angles. Troubleshooting, analysis by computer simulation using simulation software and telecommunication applications are stressed throughout. Note: Students must register for both a lecture and a lab. 3 Lecture, 3 Lab, 4 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: MAT 129 and CIS 109.

Credits: 4

ENT 110: LINEAR ELECTRONICS I

In this course, students are taught the characteristics of amplifiers using operational amplifiers with respect to amplification, dB, frequency response, and input and output impedance. Operational amplifier applications such as inverting and non-inverting amps, summing amps, averaging amps and comparators are introduced with emphasis on the uses of these devices in the telecom industry. Electro-optical devices, such as LEDs, laser diodes and photodiodes are studied and will include uses in the telecom industry. Diodes and transistors are conceptually introduced. Transformers are introduced in connection with power supplies. Diodes are applied as switches in linear and switching power supplies. The frequency response of passive networks and amplifiers is measured. Cutoff frequencies, rolloff, bandwidth, and magnitude and phase are discussed and visualized via Bode plots. Troubleshooting and analysis by computer simulation software is stressed throughout the course. Note: Students must register for both a lecture and a lab. 2 Lecture, 4 Lab, 4 Credit Hours. Prerequisites: ENT 108, PHY 131.
