  • June 30th To see your grades click here.
  • June 8th Final exam rules are as follows:
    • Exam will be held online (live) for 2-3 hours; your camera and microphone (if needed) should be ON during the exam.
    • Exam will be a classic written exam and same for all sections taking the course.
    • Exam duration to be given to you (between 2-3 hours) includes writing the answers to the answer sheets in a legible way and then uploading them to the system as a single PDF file.
    • In the course of the exam, a student may be asked to take a break from the exam and answer our questions or show us where they are with their cameras, provided that it does not exceed 3 minutes.
    • During the exam, the student should not change or leave the exam location.
  • May 10th The fourth homework has been posted that is due 22/05/2020 (before 16:30).
  • Apr. 26th The third homework has been posted that is due 04/05/2020 (before 16:30).
  • Apr. 11th The second homework has been posted that is due 20/04/2020 (before 16:30).
  • Apr. 5th Due to size limitations in Ninova, we have decided to post all lecture videos under Google Drive. Check google account details in Ninova.
  • Apr. 4th Considering that we have 80+ students, using Zoom for lectures does not seem to feasible; instead we post videos for lectures in Ninova. However, we plan to use Zoom in Ninova for question-answer sessions with up to 20 students. We will make related announcements.
  • Apr. 4th Syllabus and weekly course plan have been updated, please check.
  • Apr. 4th Lecture notes of all weeks have been posted.
  • Mar. 31th Due to Coronavirus, we are transforming to online education. For this purpose we use Ninova with some videos. For the the rest of the class, we only have homeworks and the final exam; no midterm, no quiz. Check announcements here and in Ninova.
  • Feb. 24th The first homework has been posted that is due 09/03/2019 (before the lecture).
  • Feb. 10th As a simulation tool, Spice is required for homeworks. Among different Spice-based programs, LTspice is a good and free choice; you can download it by clicking here.
