High School Education & Physics
Electronics is playing a key role in all engineering applications. All engineers should have basic knowledge of electronics. Purpose of this subject is make students familiar with basic electronics concepts. Students will be able to operate electronic test and measurement equipment like multi-meter, CRO, DC power supply and function generator.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
  1. Obtain VI characteristics of semiconductor diode
  2. Design and test diode rectifier circuits
  3. Draw and observe waveforms of clamper and clipper circuits
  4. Understand transistor characteristics, configuration and biasing methods
  5. Compare transistor CE, CB and CC circuits
  6. Design, construct and test transistor amplifier circuit
  7. Plot characteristics of FET and MOSFET
  8. Test passive electronic components
  9. Use multi-meter to measure voltage, current and resistance
  10. Use CRO to observe waveforms and measure amplitude and frequency
  11. Use open source software like eSIM for simulation of basic electronics circuits

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.
