09105/Electrical Engineering Technology (EET)

Upper Division Courses

2104. Introduction to Electrical Circuits (4 s.h.) F S SS.

(Formerly: EET 0104.)

This course considers electrical and physical characteristics of resistance, inductance, and capacitance, analysis of DC and AC circuits, operational amplifiers, elements of semiconductor devices, electronic circuits, and logic circuits. Students will also study electrical measurements. A laboratory is included.

2112. Elements of Electrical Engineering Technology I (DC Circuits) (4 s.h.)

(Formerly: EET 0130.)

Prerequisite: Introduction to Physics II (non-calculus based).

A non-calculus approach to DC circuits, node and mesh analysis, superposition and Theveninís Theorem, as well as power, electromechanical systems and transient analysis. The laboratory portion of this course allows students to undertake practical applications of the principles discussed in the lecture.

Note: Offered at Lehigh Carbon County College campus only. Mode: Lecture and lab.

2122. Elements of Electrical Engineering Technology II (AC Circuits) (4 s.h.)

(Formerly: EET 0140.)

Prerequisite: EET 2112 (0130).

Circuit analysis of alternating current circuits. Examine RC, RL, and RLC circuits as well as resonance and time response of reactive circuits and transformers. The laboratory portion of this course requires students to build basic circuits and check circuit operation with oscilloscopes. Further checks on circuit performance are done with computer software simulations of circuits covered in the lecture.

Note: Offered at Lehigh Carbon County College campus only. Mode: Lecture and lab.

3276. Digital Logic Circuits (4 s.h.) F.

(Formerly: EET 0276.)

This course covers: number systems, codes, and truth tables; logical hardware devices such as gates, inverters, tristate logic, flip-flops, and latches; digital circuits such as arithmetic units, comparators, code converters, ripple and ring counters, and shift registers; and design of combinational and sequential digital circuits. XILINX will be used. A laboratory is included.

3277. Microcomputer Systems (4 s.h.) S.

(Formerly: EET 0277.)

Prerequisite: EET 3276 (0276).

Topics in this course include: finite-state machines in process control; assembly language programming of the WDC 65816 16 bit microprocessor and its hardware system implementation; dynamic RAM read/write and DMA access; hardware interrupts; I/O port addressing and peripheral interface design; microprocessor addressing modes; op codes; and arithmetic computation. A laboratory is included.

3278. Digital Logic Circuits & Microprocessors (4 s.h.)

Prerequisite: EET 2112 (0130).

This course is the study of basic circuits common to digital logic circuits such as gates, flip-flops, counters, and arithmetic circuits. Also included are mathematical concepts such as Boolean algebra. Students also study finite-state machines in process control, assembly language programming of the WDC 65816 16 bit microprocessor and its hardware system implementation. Additional topics include: dynamic RAM read/write and DMA access, hardware interrupts, I/O port addressing, peripheral interface design, microprocessor addressing modes, op codes, and arithmetic computation. The lab runs concurrently with the lecture and provides students an opportunity to learn and prove digital and microprocessor concepts by experimentation.

Note: Offered at Lehigh Carbon County College campus only. Mode: Lecture and lab.
