Detailed Description and Outline 

Computer Usage 
Optional MATLAB and Python Honors Sections are offered to introduce the students to elements of scientific computing and graphics. 
Lab Projects 
Five biweekly labs introduce the students to opamp amplifiers, mixers, and filters. Students build a superhetrodyne AM receiver in Lab 4. In Lab 5 the receiver is modified to replace its IF section with a soundcard based sampler and software radio implementation.

Course Goals 
ECE 210 is a required 4hour course for both electrical engineering and computer engineering majors. The goals are to provide a solid foundation in analog signal processing that will serve as a strong base for further study in digital signal processing, communications, remote sensing, control, and electronics. Topics include circuit analysis, continuous time linear system theory, Laplace and Fourier transforms, AM radio, and basic analog filter design. The course includes five laboratories to give students handson experience in exercising the theoretical concepts learned in class. The labs contain significant components of categories (a), (b), (c), (e), and (k) under Criterion 3, ABET Program Outcomes and Assessment. ECE 211 is the first half of ECE 210 and is taught as a service course for students outside electrical and computer engineering.
