This course is designed for the students registered for the 3rd-semester electronics and communication engineering course under the APJA KTU for the academic year 2017-18. The primary goal of the course is to introduce key physical concepts and apply them to derive theoretical electrical characteristics of modern electronic devices like Diodes, BJTs, MOSFETs along with addressing fabrication challenges of smaller or scaled-down devices.

Course objectives:

 To make the students capable of analyzing any linear time invariant electrical network.

 To study time domain, phasor and Laplace transform methods of linear circuit analysis.

 To study the transient response of networks subject to test signals.

 To develop understanding of the concept of resonance, coupled circuits and two port networks.
