Course ID
Distance Learning (Web Courses)
Summer 2018 lasts from Monday, July 9, 2018 to Thursday, August 30, 2018
Introduces the theory, mathematical concepts, calculations, application, and troubleshooting of semiconductor solid-state electrical devices. Topics include atomic theory basis of semiconductor electrical behavior and PN junction theory and applications, including diode and bipolar junction transistors. The course emphasizes utilization of graphical, analytical, and modeling techniques for DC and AC analysis of solid-state diode and bi-polar junction amplifier small signal circuit applications. Heavy emphasis is placed on integration of circuit theory to problem solving and troubleshooting skills. In addition to hands-on experience with industry-standard test equipment, software simulation is used to enhance the presentation of theory and circuit applications, and development of troubleshooting skills.
  • Offered as a Web-based class over the Internet. Information about Web-based classes and required orientations are at All online teachers expect students to participate in the class during the first week of the term. Check the syllabus and course orientation to find out what the teacher expects and by when. Students not participating during the first week may be subject to administrative drop.
  • Distance learning fee of $40, in addition to regular tuition, will be assessed.
  • While much of the content for this course is available online, students are required to attend six hours of hands-on lab time per week to be successful. Students must attend a face-to-face orientation during the first week of the term. Instructor-led labs are available Monday through Thursday at the Table Rock Campus and Redwood Campus.
