Objectives for EE321, Part 2, Diodes

We will cover all of chapter 3 and section 9 in chapter 12 in Sedra and Smith.

The educational objectives for this part (the lectures, homework, labs and test will all be directed toward achieving these objectives) are:

  1. Design circuits using ideal diodes (rectifier, limiter).
  2. Analyze diode circuits that include R, C, and ideal op amps. Determine the bias conditions.
  3. Graphically analyze diode-resistor circuits.
  4. Comprehend the pn junction and how it works.
  5. Comprehend diode data sheets.
  6. All these objectives also apply to zener diodes
