  • (12/13) Final exam, which is available on D2L starting 10am MT on 12/13, is due via D2L by 10am MT on Wednesday, December 18. Please carefully read the exam instructions on the front page. You must sign and turn in the page with the honor code statement.You may use the blog to post questions related to clarifications or corrections in exam problem statements. However, you must not post anything related to exam solutions.
  • (12/07) Handout slides for the lectures starting Monday, Dec. 9 have been posted
  • (12/05) Homework 13 has been posted. The homework is due via D2L by 10am MT on Friday, December 13.
  • (12/01) Handout slides for the lectures starting Monday, Dec. 2 have been posted
  • (11/22) Homework 12 has been posted. The homework is due via D2L by 10am MT on Friday, December 6.
  • (11/14) Homework 11 has been posted. The homework is due via D2L by 10am MT on Friday, November 22.
  • (11/14) You may find this relevant for Problems 1 and 2 in HW set 10: in Lecture 31, I made an error in setting up the circuit for finding the closed-loop Rout. A current test source itest should have been used to find closed-loop Rout = vtest/itest, because itest is the input and vtest is the output considering Rout as the closed-loop response of interest. A note has been included on page 3 of the updated annotated slides for Lecture 31. Also, note that in Problem 2 a voltage source vtest is given as the input. Hence, Middlebrook's feedback theorem gives an expression for 1/Rout = itest/vtest. The values requested in the problem can be found from the expression for 1/Rout.
  • (11/07) Homework 10 has been posted. The homework is due via D2L by 10am MT on Friday, November 15.
  • (11/04) To get credit for LTspice simulation and design problems that involve frequency responses (such as problem S10 in HW9), make sure that subcircuit models (prefix X) are used for NMOS and PMOS devices in LTspice simulations.
