 Course material is NOT all from the text
book.
 Focus of exam will be on conceptual
understanding, and problem-solving skill.
Answers to FAQ
 Every student HAS TO attend the class he/she

Electronics and Microelectronics
Electronics is defined as the science of the
motion of charges in a gas, vacuum, or
semiconductor.
Microelectronics refers to integrated circuit (IC)
technology, which can produce a circuit with
multimillions of components on a single piece of
semiconductor material.
PASSIVE AND ACTIVE DEVICES
Passive electrical device: the time average
power delivered to the device over an infinite
time period is always greater than or equal to
zero.
Active devices: are capable of supplying particular
types of power. Transistors are also considered to be
active devices in that they are capable of supplying
more signal power to a load than they receive
