This course covers important theory in DC and AC circuit analysis. Topics include a review of the solution of simultaneous equations; Kirchoff's Current and Voltage Laws; nodal and mesh circuit analysis; superposition; source transformations; Thevenin and Norton Equivalent circuits; ideal op-amps; and RC, RL, and RLC circuits.
This course addresses the understanding and design of digital systems. Topics progress through Boolean algebra and logic gates; combinational logic; sequential logic and synchronous sequential logic systems; and design of logic circuits.
This course covers the architecture and protocols of local and wide area networks, including signaling, data representation, error control, flow control and routing. The Java-based interprocess communication API is used to provide practical examples of communication, error control and flow control. Peer to peer and client/server configurations based upon Unix/Linux and Windows architectures are explored. This course concentrates on theoretical and technical issues. Students in this course enhance their interpersonal and group effectiveness skills.
This course deals with the use of electronic devices in analog and digital circuits. The lecture component covers device physics and modeling of op-amps, diodes, FETs, and BJTs; single and multi-stage amplifiers; differential amplifiers; feedback; frequency response; Bode plots. Laboratory component covers generation and acquisition of signals; current, voltage, and impedance measurements; transfer function measurement; and spectrum measurements and analysis.
This course is the study of the principles, purposes, and organization of operating systems. The goal is to prepare students an understanding of the theory as well as practices of the design and implementation of operating systems software.
This project-based course introduces the basic concepts of embedded systems. Embedded systems are generally optimized for size, speed and power consumption. This course will focus on handling these issues in the design and development of software for embedded system.
The course presents an overview of the nature of signals, the algorithms and techniques used to process those signals and the applications to which digital signal processing can be usefully put.
