Basic Electronics

By Prof. M.B. Patil   |   IIT Bombay
Learners enrolled: 10456
The course is about basic electronic circuits, both analog and digital. In the analog part, diode circuits, BJT amplifiers, Op Amp circuits will be covered. In the digital part, combinatorial and sequential circuits will be covered. A unique feature of the course is extensive use of circuit simulation results in order to give a realistic picture of the circuit operation and waveforms. Assignments are designed to help the students to test their understanding of the concepts being covered. A circuit simulation package will be made available (as free download) to enable students to simulate circuits covered in the course and gain further insight in their functioning.

INTENDED AUDIENCE : Students, PhD scholars, teachers, industry
PREREQUISITES : A basic course in electrical engineering (KCL, KVL, network theorems, AC analysis)

Instructor bio

Prof. M.B. Patil

IIT Bombay
Prof Mahesh B. Patil received his B. Tech. from IIT Bombay in 1984, MS from University of Southern California in 1987, and PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992, all in Electrical Engineering. He has worked as a faculty member at IIT Kanpur from 1994 to 1999, and at IIT Bombay from 1999 to date. His research interests are semiconductor devices and circuits simulation. He has been teaching electronics lab and theory courses for several years, and has written a book “Basic electronic devices and circuits” (PHI, 2013). He has also prepared course material in the form of presentations on various topics covered in electronics courses (www.ee.iitb.ac.in/~sequel). For his teaching efforts, he received an “Excellence in Teaching” award from IIT Bombay in 2012.

Course certificate

The course is free to enroll and learn from. But if you want a certificate, you have to register and write the proctored exam conducted by us in person at any of the designated exam centres.
The exam is optional for a fee of Rs 1000/- (Rupees one thousand only).
Date and Time of Exams: 25 April 2021 Morning session 9am to 12 noon; Afternoon Session 2pm to 5pm.
Registration url: Announcements will be made when the registration form is open for registrations.
The online registration form has to be filled and the certification exam fee needs to be paid. More details will be made available when the exam registration form is published. If there are any changes, it will be mentioned then.
Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.

CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE

Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 8 assignments out of the total 12 assignments given in the course.
Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100

Final score = Average assignment score + Exam score

YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CERTIFICATE ONLY IF AVERAGE ASSIGNMENT SCORE >=10/25 AND EXAM SCORE >= 30/75. If one of the 2 criteria is not met, you will not get the certificate even if the Final score >= 40/100.

Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup.It will have the logos of NPTEL and IIT Bombay.It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.

Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.

Once again, thanks for your interest in our online courses and certification. Happy learning.
