  • Prerequisites

    There are no pre-requisites. Typically, what is needed is ability to handle the lab equipment (oscilloscope, generator), ability to build circuits on breadboard and also to run circuit simulation using ADS.

    Lab Material

  • Download the lab exercises
  • 2N2222 datasheet download
  • LM741 datasheet download
  • CD4007 datasheet download
  • CD4007 nMOS & pMOS transistors spice models download
  • Download from here και here solutions to the lab exercises
  • Rules and Grading

    Only one absence per student is allowed. If you miss a lab you will be given a grade of zero. To get the grade changed you have to attend a makeup lab.
    There is a pass/fail exam on eary October.
    Score analysis: ADS (oral)-30%, Electronics Lab (oral)-30%, Electronics Lab (final exam)-20%, ADS (final exam)-20%.
    ADS oral score (30%) is arising from the overall performance/behavior of the student during the semester (15%) and by the proper preparation, right execution of the lab exercises (15%).
    Final exams (20%+20%) is individual and includes the demonstration of the materialized project followed by questions and answers. The result of the materialization should be functional to get a grade >=5.0.
