Objectives for EE321, Part 4, FET's

We will cover all of chapter 5 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. Understand (comprehend) the different types of FET's, how they work and their characteristics.
  2. Design bias circuits to put FET's into the desired operation regions.
  3. Design single stage amplifiers with FET's to meet desired specifications.
  4. Analyze FET's used as active loads (in nmos, cmos and current mirrors). Design FET switches
  5. Graphically analyze FET circuits with both active and passive loads.
