Learning outcome

Knowledge The candidate must:

a. Understand the basic behavior of Si diodes, bipolar transistor and FET transistor.

b. Explain the use of diodes to create rectifiers, voltage limiters and lock circuits.

c. Explain how the zener diode can be used as voltage reference.

d. Explain the behavior of the transistor switch and amplifier element.

e. Explain the difference between power amplifiers in class A, B, AB and D.

f. Explain how MOSFET transistors can be used in digital electronic circuits.

g. Explain non-ideal characteristics of the operational amplifier.

h. Explain the principle behavior of oscillator circuits.
