NWIT 150 - Electronics for Wireless
Designed as the first in a series of wireless courses. Students are trained in the use of oscilloscopes, frequency analyzers, signal generators, power supplies, and analog and digital multimeters. Topics include technical notation, AC/DC, logic circuits, amplifier circuits, and the theory and operation of solid state devices. Students are introduced to inductors, capacitors, transformers, diodes, bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), and field effect transistors (FETs). Assessment Level(s): MATH 050 , AELR 930 /ELAR 980 /READ 099 . Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory each week. Formerly NW 150.
4 semester hours
May not be taken concurrently withMATH 017 or MATH 020 or MATH 045 without appropriate Math assessment score.
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Describe scientific and engineering notations, electrical safety, electrical charge, voltage and current, resistance and basic circuit measurements.
- Describe Ohm’s Law, energy and power, power supplies and introduction to troubleshooting electronic circuits.
- Describe series and parallel resistance circuits, current in series circuits, voltage sources in series and parallel, application of Ohm’s Law.
- Describe Kirchhoff’s voltage law, voltage dividers, Kirchhoff’s current law and its applications in parallel circuits, power in parallel circuits and troubleshooting.
- Identify series-parallel relationships, analysis of series-parallel resistive circuits, loading effect of a voltmeter, maximum power transfer theorem.
- Describe electromagnetism, Faraday’s electromagnetic induction, and introduction to Alternating current and voltage, sinusoidal voltage source.
- Describe capacitors in series and parallel, RC circuits and their applications in electronics.
- Describe inductors in series and parallel, RL circuits and their applications in electronic circuits, RLC circuits and resonance.
- Describe semiconductors, diodes, transistors, field effect transistors, diode rectifiers, special-purpose diodes.
