TE 232 - Electronics II

Credit Hours: 3

The course is a study of electronic communications systems. Systems studied include electronic filters, timers, oscillators, modulators, mixers, converters and amplifiers. Their applications are further examined within communications as modulators, multiplexers, A to D and D to A converters, antennas and transmission lines and in data transmission. Communication over free-space, wired and optical media are studied. Analog, digital, linear and non-linear methods are examined. Input/output relationships are observed through hardware and software labs.

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • use software and hardware to build, measure, and troubleshoot electronic communication circuits;
  • analyze the operation of low pass, high pass, band pass and band stop filters;
  • become proficient in constructing and testing filter circuits;
  • demonstrate capability in explaining oscillator concepts as they apply to communications;
  • gain proficiency in traditional electronic modulation techniques including AM, FM and pulse modulation;
  • assemble a simple amplitude modulator;
  • understand high level digital modulation techniques for contemporary communications;
  • possess knowledge of multiplexing and timing concepts;
  • demonstrate an understanding of the principles and applications of phase locked loops, oscillators, AtoD/DtoA converters and mixers;
  • build a phase locked loop to match Instructor specifications;
  • specify transmission lines by application;and
  • select antennas based on signal radio frequency characteristics.
