This introduction to circuit design is unusual in several respects First it offers not just explanations but a full course Each of the twenty five sessions begins with a discussion of a particular sort of circuit followed by the chance to try it out and see how it actually behaves Accordingly students understand the circuit s operation in a way that is deeper and much more satisfying than the manipulation of formulas Second it describes circuits that more traditional engineering introductions would postpone on the third day we build a radio receiver on the fifth day we build an operational amplifier from an array of transistors The digital half of the course centers on applying microcontrollers but gives exposure to Verilog a powerful Hardware Description Language Third it proceeds at a rapid pace but requires no prior knowledge of electronics Students gain intuitive understanding through immersion in good circuit design
