ABOUT THE COURSE
Electrical circuits are everywhere, from tiny ones in integrated circuits in mobile phones and music players, to giant ones that carry power to our homes. This course deals with analysis techniques that can be applied to all such circuits. We'll first discuss electrical quantities-voltage and current-relevant to such circuits and learn about basic elements(R, L, C, controlled sources) and their properties. We'll then move on to general analysis techniques that can be applied to arbitrary circuits. These will be first carried out for resistive circuits which obey algebraic equations and then extended to circuits with energy storage elements(C, L) which obey differential equations. Along the way, we'll also discuss the rudiments of negative feedback circuit using the opamp. After taking this course, one should be able to analyze any linear circuit.
XII std. level algebra and calculus, electrostatics
We will have a total of 12 weeks for this course. Certification will be based on the contents of the first 8 weeks. The last 4 weeks will cover additional material. There will be about 3 hours of lecture per week. This course is aimed at 1st and 2nd year undergraduate college students. This is intended to be the first course on electrical circuits in an undergraduate curriculum.

Course Syllabus & Schedule
He graduated with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, New York in Oct. 2000. He obtained his B. Tech. degree in electronics and communications engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, in 1996. Between 2000 and 2005, he worked as a senior design engineer at Celight, Inc. and Multilink(later Vitesse Semiconductor) where he designed integrated circuits for high speed communications. From 2003 to 2005, he was an Adjunct Assistant Professor and taught courses on Analog Circuit Design at Columbia University.
Prof. S.Aniruddhan assistant professor in the VLSI group of the department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Madras. My students work broadly in the area of Analog IC design, with specific focus on RFIC design.
I obtained a B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras in 2000, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2006. Between 2006 and 2011, I worked in the RF-Analog group at Qualcomm Inc., San Diego where I designed integrated circuits for Cellular RF applications.
