Electronics 102

This set of online, interactive, and mobile-friendly labs introduces the basic concepts of analog circuit design normally taught in a second-year Introduction to Electronics course. For each topic, students will go through a hands-on experience with both simulated and physical components, reinforcing the theory taught in lecture. Built in knowledge checks, just-in-time help features, and note taking capabilities guide the student through the lab to ensure proper understanding and introductory videos for each topic give relevant real-world background for each topic, answering the question, "when would I use this in the real world?"



  • Students learn the fundamental electronic components involved in analog circuit design. They will learn the properties and of components such as diodes, BJTs, and op-amps and how to use these components in applications such as amplifiers and rectifiers.
  • Students will go through both simulated and physical guided experiments to reinforce the theory taught through lecture
