6.002 Circuits and Electronics, Fall 2000

A mixed-signal printed circuit board containing both analog and digital components. The board is one component of a 1000-node acoustic beamformer being developed at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The board contains a pair of microphones, several resistors, capacitors, and digital integrated circuit chips.

Highlights of this Course

This course is designed to serve as a first course in an undergraduate electrical engineering (EE), or electrical engineering and computer science (EECS) curriculum. At MIT, 6.002 is in the core of department subjects required for all undergraduates in EECS. This course features a complete set of lecture videos  and descriptions of live demonstrations shown during class, along with lab assignments and many other materials used by students in the course.

Additionally, the course uses the textbook Foundations of Analog and Digital Electronic Circuits, written by professors Anant Agarwal and Jeffrey H. Lang, Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, Elsevier, July 2005, ISBN: 1558607358.

Course Description

6.002 introduces the fundamentals of the lumped circuit abstraction. Topics covered include: resistive elements and networks; independent and dependent sources; switches and MOS transistors; digital abstraction; amplifiers; energy storage elements; dynamics of first- and second-order networks; design in the time and frequency domains; and analog and digital circuits and applications. Design and lab exercises are also significant components of the course. 6.002 is worth 4 Engineering Design Points.
