Circuits I & II

These course materials combine techniques for the analysis and simulation of linear electric circuits, and measurements of their properties. Topics include resistive and energy-storage circuit elements, controlled sources and operational amplifiers, systematic analysis methods, AC steady state, power systems, magnetic coupling and transformers, transients, frequency response, and Laplace transform and computer simulation methods using LTspice. Circuit analysis techniques such as Kirchhoff’s Laws, node voltages, and mesh currents. Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits, sinusoidal steady state and phasors.

While Analog Devices is not responsible for, nor can it guarantee the accuracy of the content on Wikipedia, there might be value to the readers by providing links to topics related to the subjects covered in the above chapters as an Introduction to Electronics.

To that end, the following list is provided:

    1. linear elements
    1. nonlinear elements
  1. Active elements
    1. Darlington transistor (high current transistor configuration)
    2. Sziklai pair (high current transistor configuration, similar to Darlington pair)
    3. Operational amplifier applications – Common Op Amp configurations.
    4. Vacuum tube (“valves”)
      1. Brokaw bandgap reference – Another bandgap voltage reference topology.
    1. Switched-mode power supply (SMPS or “switching regulator”)
  2. Oscillator-related
    1. Latch (electronics)(like an SR latch)
      1. Amplifier circuit Schematic shows a differential amplifier with output tied to a common emitter amplifier that drives a class AB push–pull amplifier. In an example amplifier, we drive a similar push–pull output stage with a common collector (i.e., emitter follower) stage, and so our current amplifier will have no voltage gain.
