2010-2012 Catalog

Electronics and Integrated Circuits

The Electronics and Integrated Circuits Technical Core involves the design and analysis of the circuits that provide the functionality of a system. The types of circuits that students encounter include analog and digital integrated circuits, radio frequency circuits, mixed signal (combination of analog and digital) circuits, power electronics and biomedical electronics. The design and implementation of integrated circuits and systems using analog and digital building blocks are included in this Technical Core. A student should choose this technical area if he or she is interested in designing chips for applications such as computing, telecommunications and signal processing.
