This course is a core requirement in all Electronics programs. The course covers the basic principles of direct current circuits containing passive elements, including transient circuit analysis. Circuit theory and conversions will also be examined. Troubleshooting of basic resistive circuits with both a theoretical and a hands-on approach will be applied.
Experiments are performed in conjunction with all major topics. Basic electronic testing equipment will be used in conjunction with all lab experiments, including the Digital Multimeter and the Analog Multimeter.
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
Understand and use electric circuit terminology.
Analyze resistive circuits
Follow necessary safety precautions in dealing with electrical equipment.
Connect simple circuits following schematic diagrams.
Use basic electrical measuring equipment.
Produce a readable, informative laboratory report.
