- Atoms and Charge giving a short introduction to the atomic structure of matter and the origin of charge.
- Current, Voltage, and Power relating current to charge and voltage/power to energy.
- Schematic Diagrams and Symbols introducing schematic diagrams and schematic symbols for the most important elements. Also shows examples of typical elements used in practice.
- Ohm's Law including series and parallel connection of resistors, power rating, voltage division, and current division.
- i-v Characteristics. Relationship between current and voltage for 2-terminal devices like resistors and diodes (linear and non-linear i-v Characteristics).
- Capacitors. Introduces the most important properties and features of capacitors used in electronic circuits. Starts from the i-v characteristic of capacitors and derives series/parallel combination of capacitors, charge/discharge waveforms, capacitors with sinusoidal ac waveforms, phasors, reactance, and impedance. A video lecture using these slides is available here.
- Frequency Response of RC Circuits (updated 1-28-14). Looks at the response of RC lowpass filters (LPF) and highpass filters (HPF) in time and frequency. The system functions H(f) are derived using phasors and the magnitude and the phase of the frequency responses are computed and plotted.
- Voltage/Current Sources, Kirchhoff's Laws. Introduces properties and i-v characteristics of ideal voltage and current sources. Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws are presented and used to analyze simple circuits.
