Analog and Microelectronics

Based on the market-leading textbook Microelectronic Circuits by Sedra & Smith and written in collaboration with Texas Instruments, an industry-leader in analog design, this course covers fundamental components of Analog and Micro Electronic Circuits. Through theory and experimentation, students will be introduced to the building blocks of electronics design and guided through practical applications and design considerations of analog electronics outside of the lab.
