Basic knowledge of electronic components and laws such as KCL, KVL, etc.


This course provides a platform for students to understand working of active devices such as Diode, BJT, and MOSFET, JFET and circuits and systems like amplifier, oscillator and feedback circuits. Students are also taught to analyze and design circuits using these active devices. This is one of the foundation courses which are required for students to understand working of complex electronic circuits and systems.

Course Outcome

  11. To study and understand the power amplifier.
  12. To analyze the basic principle, operation and applications of JFET and MOSFET.
  13. To study and understand the feedback topology of amplifier.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
