COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Amplifiers
COURSE NO: E03-018
COURSE PROVIDER: Jeffrey Cwalinski, P.E.
Introduction to Amplifiers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an introduction to amplifiers for those who are unfamiliar with this subject.  It provides the basic concepts of amplifiers using the Bipolar Junction Transistor. These types of amplifiers have been used for decades, are well understood, and provide a good foundation for further studies.

 

Amplifiers are used in all types of electronic equipment.  As an example, in consumer electronics, the Blue-Ray disc player contains amplifiers for audio and video signals. Also, radios contain amplifiers to amplify the received radio signal, as well as, audio amplifiers to drive the speaker to produce audible sound.  Amplifiers are also used in instrumentation and control equipment, and medical equipment to amplify the signals from transducers which are used to sense physical parameters.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to engineers who are unfamiliar with amplifiers and need an introduction to the basic concepts.

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Electron Tubes
COURSE NO: E05-002
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Introduction to Electron Tubes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of Vacuum Tubes, explaining the basic theory, evolution and applications.

 

An electron tube is a device used for the processing of electrical signals. It consists of two or more electrodes inside a metal or glass tube which has been evacuated. Because a vacuum must be provided in the form of an evacuated enclosure in which the electrons can move without collisions with gas molecules, these devices are also called vacuum tubes or electron tubes in the US, and thermionic valves in Britain.

 

Although solid state semiconductors have replaced the electron tubes in most applications, there are still niche applications where electron tubes not only continue to see practical use, but perform their respective tasks better than any solid-state device. For example, tubes are still used in some high-power amplifiers, especially at microwave radio frequencies and in some hi-fi audio systems. There are a lot of items that still use electronic tubes such as medical equipment, communication equipment, test equipment, televisions, radios, welders, and many others.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding of electron tubes.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • State the principle of thermionic emission and the Edison Effect
  • Identify the schematic representation for the various electron tubes and their elements
  • Understand the theory of operation associated with the diode, triode, tetrode, and pentode
  • Understand the construction of various tubes and describe the purpose of various tube elements
  • State the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of electron tubes
  • State the limitations of  the electron tubes
  • Describe amplification in the electron tube and how amplification is obtained
  • Explain biasing and the effect of bias in the electron tube circuit
  • Describe, through the use of a characteristic curve, the operating parameters of the electron tube

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Transistors
COURSE NO: E04-010
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Introduction to Transistors
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of the physical concepts needed to understand the semiconductor fundamentals of semiconductor devices.

 

A transistor is a small electronic device that amplifies a signal or can turn electricity on or off.  Invented in 1948 at Bell Labs, transistors have become the key ingredient of all digital circuits, including computers. A transistor consists of three layers of silicon or germanium semiconductor material.  Impurities are added to each layer to create a specific electrical positive or negative charged behavior.  There are essentially two basic types of point-contact transistors: the NPN transistor and the PNP transistor, where the N and P stand for negative and positive, respectively. The only difference between the two is the arrangement of bias voltages. To understand how a transistor works, you have to understand how semiconductors react to an electric potential.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding in transistors.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Define the term transistor and give a brief description of its construction and operation
  • Explain how the transistor can be used to amplify a signal
