Contents of teaching:
  • Maxwell‘s Equations and electrical circuits
  • Circuit Abstraction
  • Passive electrical circuit elements
  • Methods of linear and nonlinear circuit analysis
  • Measuring voltages and currents
  • Equivalent circuit diagram (ideal/nonideal sources, MOSFETs, BJTs)
  • MOSFET Switch
  • Digital Abstraction
  • MOSFET Amplifier
  • Students understand how electrical circuits are derived from Maxwell’s equations and which simplifications are accepted in this process.
  • Students can calculate and analyze electrical circuits with passive elements.
  • Students understand how complicated circuits, e.g. with MOSFETs and BJTs can be expressed and analyzed by means of equivalent circuit diagrams with sources and passive elements.
  • Students know and comprehend the basic physical structure and operation of a MOSFET device as a switch and as an amplifier and know how to describe and analyze its operation.
  • Students know the difference between large and small signal analysis and are able to use this to analyze electrical circuits.
