EE 200: Review for Final Exam
Spring, 1997
Prof. Rich Kozick

The final exam is on Friday, May 9, 1997 at 8:00 AM in room LC 301. The exam is closed-book and closed-notes, except that you can bring three sheets of 8.5 in by 11 in paper. For example, you might bring your note sheets from the three exams during the semester.

The following is a list of important concepts from the course. Most of these items were used in both lecture and lab.

• Basic analog circuits with resistors

• Concepts of charge, current, voltage
• Kirchoff's Current Law, Kirchoff's Voltage Law, Power
• Ohm's Law, series/parallel resistors, voltage divider
• Application: Temperature measurement system with thermistor
• Maximum power transfer to a load
• Thevenin model for real sources: Understand what the model is, and what is the practical effect of the internal resistance
• Operational Amplifiers (Op Amps)

• Buffer: what it is, why it is useful
• Inverting amplifier and summing amplifier: recognize these basic building blocks in circuits; you will not be asked to analyze of op amp circuits
• Applications: D/A converter in final lab project used the summing amplifier
• Capacitors

• Physical understanding of capacitor (remember the cups of water?)
• Voltage/current relations, series/parallel connections
• Time constant for RC circuits: we used this recently for AM radio detector circuit
• Frequency selective filters

• Filter types: low pass, high pass, band pass, and band stop filters
• Concepts of impedance (like frequency-dependent resistance) and phasors
• Key idea: Identify type of filter, using ideas of impedance and voltage divider
• Digital logic

• Logic circuit analysis and design
• Stopwatch: understand how the chips worked and how the stopwatch worked, including reading the tables that describe each chip
• Final Lab Project

• Understand the system-level design of the system
• Understand the analog and digital portions of the circuit. This project applied nearly every concept from this course and lab!
• Diodes

• Ideal rectifier and large-signal model for diode
• Application: AM radio detector circuit
