EET 108 (4 credits)
DC Fundamentals (w/Lab)

Voltage, current, resistance, conductance, power, and energy
are defined. Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws, Thevenin, Norton, and
Superposition theorems are used to analyze resistive circuits.
Components studied include: resistors, potentiometers,
bridge circuits, comparators, simple timing circuits, switches,
circuit breakers, relays, h-bridges, solenoids, photo-resistors,
thermistors, voltage sources, and current sources. Students
build simple DC circuits based on concepts and components
being studied. Electrical measurements are performed to
verify proper circuit operation. Circuit construction and
measurement techniques are taught. Students are trained in
the use of Digital Multi-meters and DC Power Supplies as test
equipment.

EET 118 (4 credits)
AC Fundamentals (w/Lab)

Waveforms, capacitors, inductors, and transformers
are studied. Reactance, impedance, phase angles, and
power factor are calculated. Pulse Width Modulation,
time constants, and filters, are introduced. Students build
simple AC circuits based on concepts and components
being studied. Wave parameters, capacitance, inductance,
impedance, and phase angles are measured to verify proper
circuit operation. Students are trained in the use of signal
generators and oscilloscopes as test equipment.

Combinational Digital Logic (w/Lab)

Basic digital electronic concepts are covered including
introduction to digital machines, number systems (binary
and hexadecimal), binary arithmetic, digital signals and
switching, Boolean algebra, logic gates (AND, OR, NAND,
NOR, XOR, XNOR), logic gate specifications, and basic
combinational logic circuits. Includes an introduction to
and programming of programmable logic devices (PLDs).

EET 217 (4 credits)
Microprocessors/Microcontrollers (w/Lab)

This course is an introduction to the basic architecture and
instruction sets of microprocessors and microcontrollers.
Learning activities include basic assembly language
programming, working with programming IDE environment,
software simulation tools, hardware emulation tools, and
logic analysis of hardware signals. Both Harvard architecture
and von Neumann architecture devices are covered.

EET 222 (4 credits)
Interfacing and Programming Microprocessors (w/
Lab)

This course involves the interfacing of basic input and
output devices at the chip level to microprocessors and
microcontrollers and also includes their support ICs and
common peripheral devices. Learning activities include
interfacing, programming (at assembly language level) and
modifying existing assembly and C language code. Test
equipment-including DSOs, DVMs, logic analyzers, and data
analyzers-is used in support of these activities.
