# Lecture 1: 09-11-2021¶

Location: Pi

Time: 15:45 - 17:30

Goal of this lecture

At the end of this lecture the student:

Understands the principle of amplification using passive devices and bias sources

Understands the biasing of a BJT, FET or MOST with four bias sources

Can relate the values of the two output port bias sources to the load drive requirements

Can find the values of the two input bias sources for a given device with its output bias quantities

Can transform the biasing with four sources into an equivalent circuit that requires maximally two power supply voltage sources

Prerequisite knowledge EE4109-2021-2022

This course requires BSc level electrical engineering including the basic course “Structured Electronic Design” EE3C11.

Studends who did not follow the regular BSc program at the Delft University of Technology department EEMC are strongly recommended to study the homologation program

Physical operating mechanisms and modeling of electronic devices

L, C, R, transformer, diode, BJT, JFET, MOST

Systems, signals and information

Deterministic modeling of signals: Fourier Series, Fourier Transform, Laplace Transform

Statistical modeling of signals: mean value, mean square value, correlation, power spectral density

Shannon: channel capacity

System properties and analysis techniques: linear, nonlinear, stationary, time-invariant, instantaneous, dynamic, stable, unstable

Network theory

V-I relations, power dissipation and energy storage of basic network elements: C, L, R, independent sources, controlled sources, transformer, gyrator, nullor

Network theorems and analysis techniques: KVL, KCL, Thevenin, Norton, voltage shift, current redirection, substitution, superposition, reciprocity

Graph theory: Nodes, branches, loops, cut sets, trees, node-branch incidence matrix

Two-ports: representation methods (particularly the T1 matrix representation), unilateral, nonenergic

Estimation of poles and zeros in networks without feedback
