Fundamentals of Device Electronics: Part I & II




Starting with basic electronics terminology, this class advances into battery chemistry and battery function. Time is also spent looking at current and new technologies in this very interesting science. The class expands into a discussion on capacitor design comparing the aluminum electrolytic capacitor with the newer wet tantalum capacitor. Additionally, the topics of Polarization/Afterpotential, Ohm’s law and the energy equation, parallel pathways of lead failures, and device circuitry are covered.
