Differential amplifiers. Frequency response: active device high-frequency behaviour and circuit models; amplifier circuits and design. Feedback: concepts and structure; feedback topologies and amplifiers; open- and closed-loop response. Operational amplifiers: behaviour, circuit analysis and design. Requires payment of additional student instructional support fees. Refer to the Tuition and Fees page in the University Regulations section of the Calendar. Prerequisite: ECE 302 or E E 340. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 303 or E E 350.
The first of two design courses that must be taken in the same academic year. Students research and propose a design project to enhance or create an engineering system, process or device; they exercise creativity and make assumptions and decisions based on technical knowledge. This first course includes project definition, planning, and initial prototyping or design. Formal reports and presentation of the project proposal is required. Prerequisite: Completion of at least three years of study in the program or by consent of the Instructor. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 494 or E E 494.
The second of two design courses that must be taken in the same academic year, in which students implement an engineering system, process or device. Emphasis is placed on continued execution of the project plan developed in ECE 494. Prerequisite: ECE 494 in the preceding Fall Term. Credit may be obtained in only one of ECE 495 or E E 495
