Circuits and Electronics

Course Summary

This course is based on 6.002 Circuits and Electronics, Spring 2007 made available by Massachusetts Institute of Technology: MIT OpenCourseWare under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.
The course introduces the fundamentals of the lumped circuit abstraction. Topics covered include: resistive elements and networks; independent and dependent sources; switches and MOS transistors; digital abstraction; amplifiers; energy storage elements; dynamics of first- and second-order networks; design in the time and frequency domains; and analog and digital circuits and applications. A complete set of lecture notes is available for this course.

The course uses the required textbook Foundations of Analog and Digital Electronic Circuits by Anant Agarwal and Jeffrey H. Lang.

1. WebSim - A Simulation Based Electronic Circuits Laboratory (MIT OCW)
WebSim is a web-based laboratory that allows you to experiment with various circuits seen in this course. For example, when experimenting with an RLC circuit in WebSim, you can set the resistor, capacitor and inductor values, apply one of many inputs (e.g., step, square wave or a rock music sample), and view or listen to the corresponding output.
