20 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I AUGUST 2019 has weekly labs that are invaluable for under- standing the reality of electronics. 5. Devices and Circuits Topics covered in this course include charac- teristics of bipolar transistors, large- and small- signal models for bipolar and field-effect tran- sistors, and linear circuit applications—such as low- and high-frequency analysis of differen- tial amplifiers, current sources, gain stages and output stages, internal circuitry of op-amps, op-amp configurations, and op-amp stability and compensation. 6. Applied Electromagnetics This course aims to teach students about in- troductory electromagnetic field theory and Maxwell's equations in integral and differential forms, uniform plane waves in linear media, boundary conditions and reflection and trans- mission of waves, guided waves, transmission lines and Smith charts, and electrostatics. 7. Design of Digital Circuits and Systems This course provides a theoretical background in—and practical experience with—tools and techniques for modeling complex digital sys- tems with the Verilog hardware description lan- guage as well as maintaining signal integrity, managing power consump- tion, and ensuring robust intra- and inter-system communication. 8. Analog Circuit Design Topics introduced in this course include the design of analog circuits and systems applying modern inte- grated circuit technology, operation- al amplifiers, differential amplifiers, active filters, and voltage references and regulators. 9. Power Electronics Design This course helps electrical engi- neers with electronic conversion and control of electrical power, including semiconductor switching devices, power converter circuits, the design of magnetics, and the control of power con- verters. Other topics include AC/AC, AC/DC, and DC/DC power converters and circuit sim- ulation with extensive laboratory work and a four-week power converter design project. 10. Computer-aided Design in Power Systems In this design-oriented course in power sys- tem engineering, students are assigned a proj- ect concerning system operation and planning, steady-state and dynamic behaviors of power systems, or distribution systems. Each project involves formulating design criteria, developing an approach, and applying existing software. 11. Microwave Electronic Design This course addresses microwave engineer- ing, the design of microwave circuits using S-parameter techniques, measurement tech- niques, CAD of microwave systems, and the design, fabrication, and evaluation of a micro- wave amplifier. 12. Electromagnetics I: Microwave Engineering This course examines microwave transmis- sion line models and their applications, electro- UW electrical engineering doctoral student Hawkeye King holds the circuit boards and connectors for the Raven II robot.
