ELT 134 Solid State Devices I

3 Credit Hours • 67.5 Contact Hours (Lecture/Lab Combination)

Prerequisite: ELT 112

Focuses on diode and transistor studies starting with a review of semiconductor materials. Emphasizes rectifier circuits, R-C and L-C filters, limiters and peak detectors, zener regulators, Schottky diodes, varactors/veristors, LED’s bipolar transistors, transistor approximation, load-lines, biasing techniques, saturation, operating point, AC models including small-signal operation, h-parameters, and data sheet understanding and interpolation.
