Description This course introduces students to passive AC and DC components and covers basic theory and operation of electrical circuits. Computer labs using circuit simulation software labs will give students the knowledge and skills required by the telecommunications industry.
Goals and Objectives
To become familiar with the physical and symbolic appearance of DC and AC circuit components.
To understand the fundamental relationship between voltage, current, and resistance through the application of Ohm's law.
To learn the basic operation of DC and AC circuits.
To learn the basics of capacitance and inductance effects on wave forms.
To learn how to construct and measure circuits using software.
