BME101: Applied Electronics for Bioengineers

Introduces analog electronics. Topics include circuit theory (Kirchhoff's laws, Thevenin equivalents); constant and sinusoidal signals; RC filters; op amps; feedback; oscillators; and instrumentation amplifiers. Emphasis is on design for sensors (thermistors, microphones, electrodes, pressure sensors, phototransistors); voltage dividers are a recurring theme. (Formerly Applied Circuits for Bioengineers.) Prerequisite(s): Mathematics 11B, 19B, or 20B and previous or concurrent enrollment in Physics 5C/N or 6C/N; concurrent enrollment in Biomolecular Engineering 101L is required.

5 credits
